Board For Service 
Men To Be Erected 

On Town Lot — Sponsored By 
The Walton Woman's Club. 

Responding to a general senti- 
ment, the Walton Woman's Club 
has sponsored and contracted for 
a metal display outdoor sign- 
board to be erected on the "Town 
Lot", near Main and Church 
Streets, approximately opposite 
the fire engine house, on which 
board the names of all members 
of the United States Armed 
Forces from the two Walton vot- 
ing precints will be painted. 

The board will contain ninety 
square feet, with display border 
in the National colors. The sign 
will be constructed by the Rouse 
Sign Service and when completed 
will cost something over $75.00. 
Between $30.00 and $40.00 was 
pledged immediately upon an- 
nouncement, and the remainder 
should be collected without per- 
sonal solicitation. Lusby's Grocery, 
Conrad Hardware Store, and 
IiAann's Grocery are designated as 
places St which donations will be 
received. Whatever you feel that 
you can give, take it to one of 
these three places this week, as 
the sign is now in the course of 
construction and we hope to ha/e 
it up next week. 

The committee in charge Is 
anxious to have the name of 
every member of the United 
States Armed Forces from the 
two Walton voting precints and 
does not want to omit any name, 
and so the committee requests 
that the parents or other interest- 
ed parties related to any member 
of th Armed Forces of these two 
precints contact either Mrs. John 
li. Vest, Mrs. C. Chambers or Mrs. 
John C. Bedinger so that no name 
will be omitted.

EiUblished 18S7 

Organ^Dedicated By 
Rev. R. R. Rose 

Sunday, December 27th at 
The First Methodist C%urch, 
PaintsvUle, Ky. 

The new Hammond Organ, just 
purchased by the First Methodist 
Church, Paintsville, Ky was dedi- 
cated Sunday, Dec. 27th at the 
10:45 a. m. hour of worship. The 
Rev. R. R. Rose, pastor, preached 
the dedicatory sermon and pre- 
formed the rites with the 
assistance of the Official Board 
and the Congregation. Rev. Rose 
was formerly pastor of the Taylor 
Street Methodist Church, New- 
port, Ky., but was assigned to the 
Paintsville First Methodist 
Church in September, 1942, about 
four months ago. 

The organ was piu-chased on 
December 21, installed two days 
later and dedicated on December 
27, free on indebtedness. The in- 
stallation consists of a two 
manual console, and two, tone- 
cabinets one of which is used as 
an echo organ in the rear of the 
church overhead. 

The members of the Official 
Board are. Judge Pred Howes, 
Chmn., Paul C. Hager, Secy- 
Treas., Garland Rice, D. H. 
Dorton, V. S. Williams. Mrs. 
Beulah Meade, Howes Meade, Joe 
Radcliffe. Howard Prall, Sr., O. 
N. Evans, J. W. Turner. W. H. 
Salyer, and Abe Barber. 

Not only has the entire amount 
of money needed for the firgan 
been raised in full but also 
there is a surplus left In the 
treasury for the music fund of

Malcolm Simpson, now station- 
ed at Staten Island, N. Y. with the 
U. S. Navy spent part of Thurs- 
day and New Years Day with his

enjoying good health, and Navy 
life. His many friends were 
pleased to see him, if only for a 
short time. 

Cleveland, I., Jan 2— Sighting 
a possible breakdown of trucking 
operations in Ohio. Kentucky, 
and West Virginia, after January 
31st, R. D. Thomas, regional 
manager of the Motor Transport 
Division, Office of Defense Tran- 
sportation, today, again urged 
truck operators who have not re- 
ceived Certificates of War Necess- 
ity, or who have not been alloted 
sufficient mileage and fuel ration 
to immediately contact the near- 
est ODT office. 

"After January 31st," said Mr. 
Thompas, "fuel, tires and parts 
will be alloted only on the basis 
of conditions set forth on the 
Certificate of War Necessity, and 
no more temporary rations, under 
which many vehicles are now 
being operated, will be issued. 

"If truck operators feel theu- 
mileage allotment is insufficient 
to take care of their needs, I urge 
him to make an immediate appeal 
for increased rations. 

"Both appeals and applications 
for Certificates of War Necessity 
must go through a procedure 
which requires time in handling. 
If»a truck operator wishes to be 
assured his appeal or application 
will be processed in time, he 
should act now." 

Farmers, whose Certificate 
allotments are inadequate for 
their necessary operations, should 
apply for corrections through the 
County Farm Transportation 
Committees of the U. S. D. A. 
County War Boards, unless it is 
more convenient for them to deal 
directly with an ODT field office, 
Thomas said. 

ODT has, for convenience of 
vehicle-owners, who do not live 
near regular ODT offices, es- 
tablished 60 temporary field 
offices in Ohio, Kentucky and 
West Virginia, staffed by ODT 
representatives throughout the 
country. These representatives 
will make their headquarters in 
local Chambers of Commerce and 
other civic centers. 

Mr. Thomas emphasizes' thai as 
long as the fuel and equipment is 
available, no necessary com- 
mercial vehicles — including farm 
vehicles — will be crippled by the 
Certificate of War Necessity pro- 

"Appeals and applications must 
be made promptly by truck oper- 
ators so that the requests may be 
disposed of before January 31st, 
otherwise temporary suspension 
of operations may result," Mr. 
Thompson warned.

The Victory Fund Drive closed 
on December 31st showing a total 
of $370,927.75 in bond sales, for 
Boone County. This is short of 
our $490,000.00 quota but reflects 
a splendid effort on the part of 
the precinct Chairmen and their 
co-workers, when it must be con- 
sidered that Boone County is 
strictly an agricultural county.

The more than nine million 
poiuids of burley sold over the 
floors of the Carrollton market

new record of sales for the Car- 
rollton market, it was aimounced

of burley was gobbled up by thi; 
buyers in just 55 hours of sell- 
ing time, but the average price 
paid on the Carrollton market

general average for all the mar- 
kets in the state. Tennessee

By Russ Armies 

' The Russians continued to prove 
that while the summer might have 
belonged to the invading Nazi hosts, 
the winter was the season for Red 

Four strong Soviet armies were 
proving this in four separate drives 
against the cold and weary Ger- 
mans. These oiTensives sprung with 
the purpose of destroying Nazi man- 
power and equipment and weaken- 
ing Hitler's hold on the Eastern 
front were centered on the Rzhev 
sector, in the Stalingrad area, in 
the reaches of the Middle Don and 
in the central Caucasus. 

The central Caucasus drive was 
the newest on the Red schedule and 
was started south of Nalchik, where 
Nazi armored mountain units had 
been trying unsuccessfully for weeks 
to break through to the Georgian 
military highway in Transcaucasia. 

Most significant news came from 
the Stalingrad area, however, for 
Russian communiques reported the 
capture of Kotelnikovski, key trans- 
portation town anchoring a 200-mile 
stretch of the Stalingrad-Caucasus 
raUroad and a supply depot for the 
Nazis' eastern operations. Here big 
stores of Axis supplies were taken 
over by the Reds. From Kotelnikov- 
ski the Russians began a spearhead 
drive toward Rostov. 

Meanwhile the Red encirclement 
of 22 German divisions trapped be- 
fore Stalingrad was tightened by 
Russ advances of from 87 to 58 
miles from the southwest.

Little Panic Buying 

Fears that a nation-wide scramble 
of housewives to buy canned food- 
stuffs would develop following offi- 
cial disclosure that a point ration- 
ing system would be inaugurated in 
February failed to materialize as re- 
only isolated instances of panic buy- 

Announcement of the ration plan 
which covers more than 200 canned 
food items made by Secretary of 
Agriculture Claude R. Wlckard had 
been attacked by trade representa- 
tives as "premature" and almost 
certain to result in public hoarding 
and unfair distribution of available 

Federal authorities defended the 
advance announcement on the 
ground that complicated controls 
were necessary to administer the 
program. They contended, too, that 
if the public were not notified, ru- 
mors might circulate and cause hys- 
terical purchasing. 

Grocers attributed the absence of 
panic buying to two major reasons. 
One was the government's require- 
ment that before a rationing book 
could be issued, any hoarded goods 
had to be declared and the equiva- 
lent number of rationing coupons 
surrendered at the time of registra- 
tion. The other was that any case 
of hoarding where false representa- 
tion was made, might be punishable 
by a maximum fine of $10,000 or one 
year in prison or both.

lic can "take bad news," govern-

old assassin that killed Adm. Jean 
Darlan made Giraud's selection In-

That the elevation of Giraud to the 
slain Darlan's post had a unifying 
effect was immediately manifest. 
Not only did the French North Af- 
rican civil and military forces rally 
behind the new commissioner, but 
Gen. Charles de Gaulle, leader of 
the Fighting French, quickly 
pledged his support of Giraud's re- 
gime and urged the formation of a 
temporary government to unite all

While the murder of Darlan un- 
deniably settled the controversy rag- 
ing through the United Nations over 
the North African alliance of the Al- 
lies and the ex-Vichy collaboration-

Although tropical sunshine had 
dried the surface of Tunisia's boggy 
roads, the gumbo mud continued to 
hamper free movement of either the 
Allied or Axis forces. Principal 
strategic key was the town of Med- 
Jez-el-Bab, where General Dwight 
Eisenhower's army was endeavoring 
to anchor its positions for the com- 
ing aU-out offensive against strongly 
held Tunis and Bizerte. That these 
positions could not be won without 
fierce struggles was indicated by re- 
ports that the Allied forces had 
withdrawn from an advanced hill six 
miles northeast of Medjez-el-Bab. 

Air offensives continued against 
Axis bases in Tunisia and Axis sup- 
ply lines from Sicily and Italy with 
Flying Fortresses battering Sousse, 
Tunis and Bizerte. 

French forces under General Gi- 
raud had carried out aggressive ac- 
tion along the "waist" of Tunisia, 
taking the town of Pichqn and ad- 
vancing in a drive to prevent the ef- 
fective junction of Marshal Rom- 
mel's Libyan forces with those of 
General Walther Nehring in Tunisia.

Washington, D. C. 

Behind the award of the Congres- 
sional Medal of Honor to 31-year-old 
Lieut. Com. Bruce McCandless of 
the U. S. Cruiser San Francisco is 
a story almost without parallel in 
the annals of naval warfare. 

Inside fact is that shdrtly before 
he was cited for heroism "above and 
beyond the call of duty," in the 
smashing November 13 Solomons 
naval victory, McCandless wasn't 
sure whether he would be decorated 
or hauled on the carpet for insubor- 

His citation was one of glittering 
generalities, but here is the whole 
story of what happened: 

McCandless was on the bridge of 
the San Francisco when it led a 
spectacular assault between two col- 
umns . of Jap vessels, firing point- 
blank at both. In the roaring 35- 
minute engagement, Rear Admiral 
Daniel J. Callaghan, commander of 
the task force, and Capt. Cassln 
Young, skipper of the San Francisco, 
were killed, as well as other officers 
outranking McCandless. 

The young lieutenant commander 
did not notify superior officers on 
Other vessels in the task for;;e of 
Callaghan's death, but immediately 
took command and began giving or- 
ders to the other vessels In Cal- 
laghan's name. Ordinarily, this 
would constitute a rank breach of 
discipline. However, McCandless 
acted as he did for two reasons: 

(1) He was thoroughly familiar 
with the plan of attack, having been 
present at strategy powwows of 
Callaghan and Young when it was 
mapped out, and he feared there 
might be a slipup in carrying out 
the daring task maneuver if the 
command passed to another ship 
after Callaghan's death. 

(2) It was vital to keep the news 
of Callaghan's death from the Japs, 
and they undoubtedly would have 
intercepted the radio communication. 

After the engagement, when a 
friend suggested that he might be 
decorated for his brilliant "incog- 
nito" leadership, McCandless is quot- 
ed as replying that he Would be 
lucky to get off without a "court 
martial." However, the navy was 
only too glad to give praise where 
praise was due.

him to come in to see the President,

Washington, D. C. 
Hints to the effect that the Presi- 
dent will make a discussion of post- 
war conditions a part of his forth- 
coming message to the 78th congress 
foreshadows the re-entry on the dip- 
Idmatic stage in a prominent role 
of the figure of Secretary of State 
Cordell Hull. In wartime, diplomacy 
plays its part chiefly behind the 
scenes— the brass hats have their 
day in public. But there are now 
several indications that Secretary 
Hull is about to take the spotlight 
again in an old familiar role, name- 
ly, as spoHesman for the economic 
platform which he made a part of 
our foreign policy before the war. 

To understand Secretary Hull's 
Importance today it is well to re- 
call the words spoken to me not 
long ago by a very keen diplomatist: 
"Secretary Hull," he said, "was 
probably chosen as secretary of 
state for four reasons: One, because 
of the President's political debt to 
him and because they were friends; 
two, because he had a diplomatic 
gift; three, because there was vital 
need for liaison between the state 
department and congress; and four, 
because of Hull's deep knowledge of 
international trade relations." 

Reason No. 3 is more important 
than ever, and although reason No. 
4 may have been a pure coincidence 
at the time, it is turning out to be 
one of the most important factors. 
Today "reason No. 4" is coming 
to the front. There are those in 
the administration who believe that 
America must play a vital part in 
the building of the post-war world if 
freedom of enterprise is to be main- 
tained. They realize, too, that un- 
less conditions of peace are outlined 
before the armistice, isolationist 
sentiment may break out again and 
force America back into extreme 
nationalism when the war is over, 
as it did in 1918. 

Turning Point 

Toward Depression? 

America's withdrawal from world 
affairs in 1918 is considered by the 
people who believe in Hull's inter- 
national trade policy as the turning 
point that led straight to the depres- 
sion of the twenties. Then it was 
that America began building up her 
tariff walls, which many economists 
consider one of the causes of World 
War II. 

Throughout this period the foreign 
war debts were festering. America 
continued to demand payment of 
those debts and at the same time to 
raise trade barriers that curtailed 
international commerce and thus 
made the debt payments impossible. 

Then came the New Deal and the 
introduction iSt many measures, 
some of which tended further 
toward nationalism. Secretary Hull, 
who had been fighting an uphill fight 
for free trade relations without much 
success, especially after the sabo- 
taging of the London Economic con- 
ference in 1933, finally launched his 
reciprocal trade agreements plan. 

Hull's progress was retarded for 
many natural reasons. In the first 
place, it was too slow and undramatic 
a procedure to engage the Presi- 
dent's active support The President 
leans to the dramatic, does not pre- 
tend to understand fiscal matters. 

In the Second place, the traditional 
state department attitude. was one 
of aristocratic disdain of all matters 
involving trade. 

Lend'Lease Policy 
Fitted Into Picture 

Then came that new and strange 
device, the lend-lease policy. It was 
inaugiurated, first in the hope that 
we could fight the war in absentia 
by furnishing Britain the tools, and 
secondly, to avoid the recurrence of 
that painful phenomenon, the war 
debts. And then, just when, it is 
not known, or exactly how. Secre- 
tary Hull was able to revive his 
I>olicy of unhampered trade by in- 
troducing Article VII into the lend- 
lease agreements. 

Briefly, Article VII provides: 
"In the final determination of the 
benefits to be provided to the United 
States of America by the Govern- 
ment of in return for aid 

furnished under the Act of Congress 
of March 11, 1941, the terms and 
conditions thereof shall be such as 
not to burden commerce between 
the two countries, but to promote 
mutually advantageous economic re- 

lations between them and the better- 
ment of world-wide economic rela- 
tions. To that end, they shall Include 
provision for agreed action by the 

United States of America and 

open to participation by all other 
countries of like mind, directed to 
the expansion, by appropriate inter- 
national and domestic measures, of 
production, employment, and the ex- 
change and consumption of goods, 
which are the material foundations 
<»f the Uberty and welfare of all 
peoples; to the elimination of all 
forms of discriminatory treatment in 
international commerce; to the re- 
duction of tariffs and other trade 
barriers; and, in general, to the at- 
tainment of economic objectives 
identical with those set forth in the 
Joint Declaration made on August 
14, 1941, by the President of the 
United States of America and the 
Prime Minister of the United King- 

"At an early convenient date, con- 
versations shall be begun between 
the two governments with a view 
to determining, in the light of gov- 
erning economic conditions, the best 
means of attaining the above-stated 
objectives by their own agreed ac- 
tion and of seeking the agreed ac- 
tion of other like-minded govern- 

The chronology of America's ap- 
proach to a peace founded on the 
principles of free economic Inter- 
course is: 

Autumn of 1940: The Atlantic 
March, 1941: Lend-Lease law. 
February, 1942: Master Lend- 
Lease agreement with Britain. 

June. 1942: President's clari- 
fication of Article VII. 
Secretary Hull believes that a 
sound and equitable international 
economic policy must be laid down 
before we can hope for international 
political stability. He will be, as he 
always has been, the champion of 
that view. 

That is the internationalist view.

Washington's 'Second City 
—The Pentagon 

"This ain't a building— this is a 
city with a roof over it, that's what 
I caUs it." 

This was the remark of my dusky- 
skinned guide between bites of a 
ham sandwich which one of his col- 
leagues had offered him as we made 
our journey through the maze of 
corridors in that amazing building, 
the Pentagon, in Washington, which 
houses the war department. 

It is a city, for it houses no less 
than 40.000 workers. ' When they 
leave, they begin at 4:30 p. m., one 
group after another every ten min- 
utes. Otherwise, all the busses and 
cabs and private cars that jam the 
labyrinth of highways, which cost 
$150,000 a mile to build, would never 
be able to take care of them. 

Recently I took a cab with an in- 
experienced driver. 

I'm afraid I took the hard way. 
There were four policemen at the 
door and a huge receptionist desk. 
I found my proper stall, labeled 
"Press," and showed my pass to 
the girl. She had never heard of 
me or the Western Newspaper Union 
or the Blue Network, and she spelled 
my name wrong three times. How- 
ever, I was eventually moved up to 
a waiting bench and finally a guide 
appeared and escorted me to the of- 
ficer I wished to see. 

We passed two beverage rooms on 
the way and as I was somewhat ex- 
hausted, I dropped into one for a 
soft drink and a cigar. 

It took me 30 minutes from the 
time I got in the building to the 
time I reached my destination, and 
some of the people there told me 
they had already been waiting long- 
er than that. 

The officer whom I was visiting 
had an uiside office. He told me 
that if the lights ever went out, they 
would be in pitch blackness at noon, 
for, of course, there were no win- 
dows. I asked what would happen if 
the ventUating system broke down. 
He said he had not thought of that 
I had — and I imagine the air would 
get pretty bad before very many 
minutes if the air conditioner ceased 
to work. 

This huge institution is only a frac- 
tion of the expansion of Washington 
which has been caused by the war, 
but it is a concrete s}rmbol of the 
tremendous clerical effort required 
to beat the Axis.

Mid-day meals with that go-and- 
get-it spirit are those that are prop- 
erly oalanced, 
and have plenty 
of eye-appeal. 
The days are 
gone when you 
can make a quick 
dash to the cor- 
ner grocery and 
bring home lamb 
chops to broil quickly. Gone, too, 
are days when you had loads of left- 
overs from yesterday's roast. 

But, homemakers, you need not 
be foiled, rather let yqur ingenuity 
devise new ways of , getting nutri- 
tion requirements into your menus. 
Use protein foods like peaS, beans, 
eggs, and vitamin Bl foods, like ce- 
reals as extenders to make up for 
meat. Your New Year victory menu 
parade starts off with a meat loaf 
"stretched" with oatmeal.

Lynn Says: 

Cans and Jars: You will have 
noticed that your grocery shelves 
present a different picture than 
in the past. Instead of all food 
being put up in cans, some food 
has been preserved in glass. 

In those foods placed in cans, 
the government has decreed 
three different sized cans. 

A number two sized can, one 
of the standard sizes yields 2Vi 
cups and wiU serve four to five 
people. The number 2^ sized 
can averages 3^ cups and feeds 
six people. . . 

Largest food can is niunber 10, 
usually used by institutions and 
restaurants. This large size is 
not usually practical for a fam- 
ily of less than eight since it 
yields 12 cups and would last for 
at least two meals. 

A few additional sized cans 
are allowed in the case of canned 
meats, fish, baby food, and citrus

white muslin tufted with old-fash-

It is diflRcult to find appropriate 
curtains that will stand steam and

these in your favorite color. 

Cut the curtains the length and

flat on a~ table and mark diagonal 
lines on the goods with a yardstick

inches apart to form the plaid pat-

with four strands of candlewick

Place Lamps to Utilize Light 
Most Efficiently 

The amount of useful light you get from a lamp decreases 
rapidly as the lamp is moved away from the working area < 
light^. Conversely, the useful light increases greatly as the light 
source is moved toward the working area. In the above example, 
merely by moving the end table lamp eight inches from the far 
to the near side of the table, the amount of useful light for read- 
ing or sewing was more than doubled. Remember this important 
point and always place chairs close to lamps. You'll not only get 
more light for your money, but you'll prevent needless eyestrain.

A. J. LlttreU, I heard tonight 
Has pierced the great beyond. 
Left his dear faithful wife behind 
Who soon will follow on. ■ 

And no doubt she does wonder 

God left her here behind — 
In this old lonesome world below 
To ponder and to pine. 

Seventy years ago they wed 
They loved each other dear 
Together they shared all their 

Their sorrows and their tears. 

She'll miss him, yes she'll miss 

He was so true and brave 
And no doubt she Is wishing now 
They both slept In one grave. 

Oh he's not dead. He is not dead 

He's only gone before 

And while his friends bemoan his 

He walks the golden shore. 

No doubt his spirit lingers still 
About the old home place 
Knows everything that's going on 
Though they can't see his face. 

But if they live a life for God, 
From sinful things stay free 
When Gabriel gives that final 

His face again they'll see. 

He'll meet you Mrs. LlttreU dear 
With a smile upon his face 
For I know God, he loved him 

He saved him by his grace. 

So cheer up dear, have faith in 

Don't be so sad and blue 
Just know that he has gone atwve 
And there he waits for you.

The big news on the Home 
Front is still the expanded ration- 
ing program set up by the Office 
of Price Administration. It is a 
part of the democratic process of 
assuring that our food is fairly 
apportioned, and that a sufficient 
•upply is kept available. 

It is worked out as a balance 
of our own domestic needs, the 
needs of our armed forces, who 
must have the very best, and the 
needs of our Allies who are help- 
ing us in the fight to keep Axis 
oppression from our common 
door. The OPA was directed by 
the Department of Agriculture to 
undertake the rationing of vir- 
tually all commercially processed 
vegetables and fruits — canned, 
bottled, and frozen vegetables, 
fruits, juices, dried fruits, and all 
soups. It is expected that this 
food rationing program will begm 
in February when the mechanics 
of the system will be ready to roll. 

The reasons for announcing the 
program this far in advance may 
be found in the magnitude of the 
job to be done before rationing 
can begin. War Ration Book 2 
must be distributed to every 
family and 1,500,000 OPA volun- 
teers must be recruited and train- 
ed to handle registration. Food 
wholesalers and retailers must be 
instructed in the plan, and trade 
meetings must be held from coast 
to coast. 

The consumhig public itself 
must be adequately informed on 
the use of War Ration Book 2, so 
that they will know how to use it 
when the program starts. 

To register for Book 2, it will 
be necessary to make a declatat- 
ion of all the commercially pro- 
cessed fruits and vegetables in the 
individual's possession, and 
stamps will be deducted accord- 
ingly before the book is issued. 
The national acceptance of the 
program has been highly gratify- 
ing, for in only a few isolated 
instances, has there been any 
unpatriotic rush of hoarders who 
buy extra stocks of canned goods. 

This far-feaching step may be 
taken by consumers as a sign that 
the OPA and the Department of 
Agriculture v/ill keep the ''food 
situation under firm control, and 
that adequate diets will be as- 
sured to everyone.

kaving been fatally shot by an unknown 
•(lallant, made two Identical wills, leav- 
iBg all his money and the KInf Cole 
Ranch to Ann Lee and to Cole Cody, 
rttBdigii ^1 BH two 6ld (iron ies, B Usty 
Lee and Buck Cody. Ranee Waldroik, 
Who claimed relationship, appeared at 
the Ranch Jnst prior te Old Bill's death. 
Meanwhile, Ann and Cole were on their 
way to the Ranc|i l»y stage coach. Long 
Peters, the sta^- driver, was ihot 
through the arm during a hold-up, to 
Cole Cody took bis place on the driver's 
teat where he was joined by Ann. Final- 
ly they arrived at Bald Eagle, where 
Cody met Por&rlo Lopei. 

Now continue with the story. 


Porflrio snatched up his glass. 
"We drink together, you and me, 
Senor Codito! To one gr-reat gentle- 
manl To one of the soldiers of the 
good God Hii^self! To Don Senor 
Early Bill Cole! To him, forever 
sad ever, 'Salud y pesetas!' To Don 
Senpr Early Bill Cole!" 

Then Cole Cody, forgetting other 
things, gripped him by the thin 

"What are you talking about?" he 
demanded sharply. "Early Bill 
Cole? Of the King Cole Ranch? You 
■ay he is dead?" 
"Only two days ago, Don Codito." 
"But I had a letter from him, 
Porflrio, only • few days ago! And 
dead now!" 

Here was news! Cole Cody stood 
frowning at nothing, telling himself 
that aU along this had been • funny 
howdy-do: First the letter from old 
EarljT Bill, which he had been ut- 
terly unable t« explain; now the vio- 
lent removal of the only man who 
could tell him. Well, he'd go to the 
hotel over night, then in the morn- 
ing turn tail and leave Bald Eagle 
and a lot of unanswered questions 
behind him. Along with a girl he 
■ever wanted to see again. 
He lifted his glass. 
"We drink together to Don Saner 
Early Bill Cole!" cried litUe Por- 
flrio, and snatched ofl his hat. "The 
two of us together." 

It was far too early for bed, so 
Cody and Porflrio Lopez dawdled 
over their supper in one of Bald 
Eagle's little restaurants for the bet- 
ter part of an hour, and thereafter 
set out to see the town. Cody was 
about to call it a night and go oS 
to bed when he was accosted by a 
lean and wiry old man with a mane 
of snowy hair and a mammoth, un- 
pruned white mustache, with a 
broad and battered old black hat 
and sleek high-heeled boots and a 
long-tailed black ceat. None other, 
in fact, than Mr. Arthur Henry Pope 
—the Judge. 

"Mr. William Cole Cody, I be- 
lieve?" he said sonorously. 
"That's my name, sir," he said. 
"And I, sir, am Arthur Henry 
Pope. I know something about you; 
■ot much, but something. I'd like a 
lew words with you, Mr. Cody," 
said the Judge. "In private." 
"What is it?" asked Cody. 
"I have taken a room for you at 
the hotel where you'U want to 
stay overnight. Will you step over 
With me?" 
"I'm with a friend—" 
"The matter is of importance. 
Also of an entirely private nature — " 
"Go 'long with him, Don Codito," 
said Porfirie, and began a discreet 
withdrawal. "He is a man they call 
the Judge here. He is all right, you 
will see, because they tell Jne he 
was a very good friend of Don Senor 
Early Bill Cole;" Then Porflrio bolt- 
ed, headed for the bar, again flour- 
ishing his colorful bandana. 

"Certainly," agreed Cody, his cu- 
riosity now riding high, and the two 
went out together.

Bill Cole you are talking about— 
Why, I don't know hlml I never 
saw him even. In my life! I never 
heard of hlml Of course. Doctor, 
there is some mistake. It must be 
some other girl— some other girl, 
maybe, named Lee. Maybe even 

"There may Be a lot of mistakes 
in this whole deal," the old doctor 
grunted, "but that's not one of them. 
You're the girl all right — Say, 
haven't you got the key!" 

"The key! Why, of course I 
have!" She jumped up, the box In 
her hands, and ran to the walnut 
bureau; she pulled and tugged un- 
til she got the lop-sided top drawer 
open and extracted her purse. "Here 
is the key! He sent it to me with a 
letter that made me terribly cu- 
rious, saying some things, half-say- 
ing some,' leaving out the things I 
was dying to know!" 

"That wouW be old Early Bill for 
you," said Doc Joe tartly. "And I 
reckon that's the key all right. You 
might try It." 

She got the key in one of the 
locks. It fitted! It turned easily. 

"It is the right key!" she ex- 
claimed, and tried it In the other 
lock. She withdrew the key, looked 


ing white in the distance under the 
eastern sun, the old Casa of the 
Estradas, the home for many a year 
of Bill Cole of King Cole Ranch, was 
like an alaUaster palace 6Ut et • 

A bit earlier in the evening, the 
Judge and Doc Joe having a tew 
moments together on their porch 
after Doc Joe had tinkered with his 
new patients as best he could and 
jot them off to their beds, the Judge 
bad been led to remark with a snort, 
"Old Early Bill, confound his or- 
nery hide, having sworn by all that 
was good and holy he'd get him bis 
tun after Ee was dead, ought to be 
laughing his fool head off nowl" 

In his turn Doc Joe had snorted. 
"The fools were you and me, 
Judge," he growled. "Two softies,' 
a couple of mush-hearted sissies. We 
•ught to have stood up on our hind 
legs and told him to go to the devlL" 

All this was because before his 
demise old Early Bill had instructed 
this precious duo, laying down the 
law to them and exacting their prom- 
ises U> carry out his bidding. If he 
died before his "heirs" arrived, the 
Judge and Doc Joe were to look 
out for the two, and were to tell 
tfaem just as much as Early Bill 
wanted told, not a single syllable 
more. Doc Joe was to explain mat- 
ters to the gir;, the Judge was to do 
likewise for young Cody. And they 
were not unduly to stick their noses 
into subsequent happenings. "Let 
nature take its cotirse!" old King 
Cole iiad chuckled. 

And now the Judge and Doc Joe, 
having in due course learned that 
both Cole Cody and Ann Lee were 
•n the stage, were faithfully if Ir- 
reverently carrying out orders. 

Thus, while Dec Joe was expound- 
lot to a round-eyed, breathless girl 
and her quietly attentive Aunt Jeni- 
fer in one room Of the Bald Eagle 
Hotel, the Judge was letting head 
and ears of the cat out o< tha bag 

"Yon take mighty good care of 
that box. Miss Ann," be said hur- 

at it, stooped over the box again, 
tossing her head impatiently to 
throw the hair back from falling 
over her eyes. "Something's the 
matter with the crazy thing," she 
said, baffled. "Will you try it. Doc- 

He shook his head. "No use, Miss 
Ann. One thing I didn't tell you. 
Your key fits only one of the two 
locks. There's another key. It — 
ahem!— it's being kept by someone 
else. A man that old Early Bill 
trusted it to. You can't open your 
box until he shows up." 

"Why, isn't that funny! Who is this 
man? Is he here in Bald Eagle? 
When will he give me the other 

Doc Joe was already edging to- 
ward the door. 

"You take mighty good care of 
that box. Miss Ann," he said hur- 
riedly. "Just you remember that 
it's worth a power of money! The 
whole King Cole Ranch is in there— 
and a heap of gold and greenbaclu 
besides! Just you take mighty good 
care of it. Miss Ann. And now, good 
night to you, Miss. And to you also. 
Miss Jenifer," he said, and ducked 
out and fled. ' 

And in that other room imder the 
same roof the Judge had finished 
imparting to young Cody all the 
facts in the case which he had been 
authorized to make fairly clear. Co- 
dy bad heard him out in silence, his 
eyes dark between narrowed lids, bis 
face stilled to expressionlessness. 
And when the Judge, too, grew si- 
lent Cody still sat on a moment or 
two, pondering. 

"Thanks. Judge," be said. "I 
gofiss that's all you've got to tell 
me? Wouldn't do much good to start 
asking questions?" 

The Judge rather liked him for 
that . 

He shook bis bead, ready to go. 

"Come to me later, if you want 
to," he said. "I'm hoping that thhigs 
will work out all right for you. 
Maybe they wllL That's what that

Upon its gentle knoll. Its whlte- 
waahtd adobe walls a snowjr, gleam- 

fairy tale, 

The low, massive building wai 
surrounded by a wall akin in con- 
struction to itself, a wall of adobe, 
white-washed, topped with warm 
red tiles. Ann Lee, leading the way, 
her carpet-bag containing the pre- 
cious iron box caught tight undei 
her arm, threw open a gate and hur- 
ried along one of the paths radiating 
from the old home. And Aunt Jeni- 
fer, her cheeks almost as pink aa 
her niece's, her. eyes almost at 
bright, came hurrying after her. 

The place seemed deserted. The 
two women came to , the patio and 
stood very still; it was as though 
they found in ttie sUence a gentle 
command for like silence on theii 

Aunt Jenifer reached for the belj 
cord and gave it an emphatic yank 
setting the bell echoing through the 
house. A man's voice — they were 
sure they had brought him rudely 
out of sound sleep— called out, 

"Hello, who's there?" And then, 
without awaiting an answer, "Wail 
a shake: I'U be right out." 

They had to wait more than a 

At long last they heard a heavy 
bar let down, and the door opened 
slowly only a dozen inches or so. 
A tall young man looked out at 

"Good morning, ladies! This is a 
surprisel You're twice as welcoms 
as the birds in spring. Come in, 
won't you?" 

They entered just a trifle hesitant- 
ly, the house was so dark and, at 
the moment, somehow sinister and 
forbidding.' But that was only be- 
cause all the shades had been drawn 
down and it was dark in here after 
the sunshine outside. He said pleas- 
antly. "Just a second and we'U have 
soma light in," and went to ont 
window after another flipping up the 
shades. The sunlight streamed in 
joyously; of a sudden, with the dark 
put to flight, it became a genial 
and friendly room. 

And now they could see Ranca 
Waldron clearly. 

"I am Ann Lee and this is my 
Aunt, Miss J/snifer Edwards. W« 
had an invitation from— from Mr. 
William Cole to visit hhn here. Wa 
got to Bald Eagle only last night 
and now— Well," and she too smiled 
faintly, "here we arel" 

"I am taking care of things right 
now," he said. "I was lucky to 
get here just before my uncle died." 
"Your uncle?" spoke up Aunt Jen- 
ifer. "Old Bill Cole was your im- 

Ranee made a little deprecatory 

"I've always called him that," he 
said easily. "Not an uncle exactly, 
but related. I am, I believe, his 
next of kin; his only kinsman, in 
fact I am Ranee Waldron; my 
mother and the old man were cous- 
ins. It's because of th^t," and he 
lifted his broad shoulders in the 
hint of a shrug, "that I am staying 
on here. Unless there is a will, 
and I don't believe he ever made a 
wUl. I suppose I am the next owner 

At the mention of a will, Ann's 
lips were parted to speak up, but 
by the time he had added a final 
clause she had become conscious of 
Aunt Jenifer's eyes stabbing wam- 
ingly at her. 

Aunt Jenifer said, "It's a mighty 
nice place out here. He wanted us 
to visit him for a while. We've 
come a long way, too, over a hun- 
dred miles. We got to town last 
night on the stage." 

What she was driving at was ob- 
vious enough, and there didn't seem 
very much he could do about it. Had 
it just been the older woman alone. 
Ranee Waldron might have been the 
man for putting her out bodily; tils 
eyes, however, quitted her face 
while she was still speaking and 
drifted, openly admiring, to Ann's, 
He said with a semblance of hearti 

"Well, the thing that counts is 
that you're here now I And I am 
glad that I happened to be on hand 
to welcome you in my uncle's place. 
And I'll bet you haven't even had 
breakfast yet I know I haven't" 
"Will you show me the way to 
the kitchen?" asked Aunt Jenifer. 
"I'll be glad to get breakfast for 
"Say," that's great!" said Ranee. 
He showed them the kitchen, a 
room big enough for* a bam, with 
an enormous cook stove which Early 
Bill had had installed here many a 
year ago and which had had scant 
use for a dozen years, and there 
were ample provisions. 

"Now," said Aunt Jenifer, sleeves 
rolled back on a pair of pretty, 
white arms and a clean sugar sack 
pinned about her waist "you can 
skedaddle and I'll call you when 
things are ready." 

"Fair enough," said Ranee. "1*1]

heard his boots echoing through th<

most once every month. I pointed 
out the various jobs done by the 
liver such as manu- 
facturing bile and 
Uien the various jobs 
done by the bile; the 
storing of sugar in 
the liver for future 
needs of the body; 
the importance of 
the liver in filtering

form the blood; that the liver was 
the largest organ in the body and 
had within it about one-quarter of 
all the blood of the body. 

There was one point I mentioned 
once or twice but did not emphasize 
as I should have done and that was 
the advisability of having the liver 
tested for its working ability just as 
the heart, kidneys, stomach, blood 
vessels and other organs ire tested. 
A test can be made showing the 
working ability of the liver, by the 
use of substances taken by mouth 
or injected into a vein. The liver 
should remove these substances 
from the blood within a definite time 
if it is doing its work properly. One 
of these substances is hippuric acid. 
In the Medical Journal of Austra- 
lia, Drs. Margaret Henderson and B. 
Splatt report their results In 89 pa- 
tients with liver disease, 86 with va- 
rious other disorders, and 25 normal 
adults or patients recovering from 
minor ailments. Not only did the 
results show the extent to which the 
liver was damaged or imable to do 
its work, and the extent of heart 
damage, but it showed also how the 
damaged condition of the liver was 
allowing poisons to aggravate other 
conditions present in the body, such 
as pernicious anemia, tuberculosis 
and rheumatic arthritis.

LESSON TEXT— John 3:1-18. 

GOLDEN TEXT— For God so loved 
the world, that he gave his only begotten 
Son, that whosoever belleveth on him 
should not perish, but have everlasting 
life.— John 3:16. 

Nicodemus came to our Lord 
when He was in Jerusalem for the 
Passover. Jesus had chosen six of 
His disciples, had performed His 
first miracle at Cana, and had made 
a brief visit to Capernaum, after 
which He came to 'Jerusalem for 
the feast. 

In high and holy Indignation He 
had driven the money changers out 
of the temple. The Pharisees who 
looked for the coming of the Mes- 
siah as a secular conqueror won- 
dered at this new spiritual leader. 
It was probably as much on their 
behalf as his own that Nicodemus 
came to inquire of Jesus. 

In answering his questions Jesus 
reveals the necessity, the nature, 
and the method of regeneration. The 
only entrance into the Christian life 
is by the door of the new birth. Re- 
generation is the act of God whereby 
the divine nature Is imparted to the 
believing sinner and he becomes the 
child of God. He who has not en- 
tered by this way has not entered 
1^ all. He is still dead in tres- 

Mental Clinics 
Doing Good Work 

A few years ago the statement 
was made that at the present rate of 
increase in the number of mental 
cases in any and all commimities, 
within 50 years it would mean that 
at least one - half the population 
would require mental care. Natural- 
ly health departments everywhere 
are trying to prevent this condition 
by various means. 

Today mental institutions by regu- 
lar and special forms of treatment 
by the help of visiting or resident 
specialists — throat, teeth, heart 
lungs, and others— are able to send 
back to home and business about 
6 in every 10 patients admitted. 

Where the greatest progress is be- 
ing made, however, is the recogni- 
tion of the "early" symptoms and 
signs of mental ailments by the fam- 
ily and general physician, and the 
sending of these early cases to a 
mental or psychiatric cUnic. 

If the average, taxpayer stopped 
to think of wharSt^osts to keep 
just one patient in a mental institu- 
tion, he would gladly pay a few 
cents extra yearly to prevent it 

Dr. Victor H. Vogel of the U. S. 
Health Servite, as recorded by Sci- 
ence Service, states: 

"It would not cost taxpayers a 
cent if their local health services 
added mental hygiene clinics to 
their child health clinics and other 
services. Such clinics would pre- 
vent mental breakdowns and so re- 
duce the number of patients cared 
for in mental hospitals. Mental ill- 
ness is the most expensive kind be- 
cause of its long duration. If only 
three people a year are saved from 
becoming public charges In a men- 
tal Institution, that means enough 
money saved to support a mental 
hygiene clinic for an entire year." 

The saving of money Is but the 
least of the benefits of a mental 
clinic. It cannot be compared with 
the savtog of life and happiness. 

Mental hygiene clinics help peo- 
ple whose lives are threatened by 
other dangers, too. A divorce can 
sometimes be prevented, a home 
kept intact or a suicide prevented.

passes and sins, without God and 
without hope (Eph. 2:1, 12). 

Men seek to enter the household of 
God by almost any other means — 
culture, reform, character building 
— and neglect or reject God's way. 
I. The Necessity of Regeneration 
(vv. 1-7); 

Jesus was not unduly Impressed 
by the dignity and high station of 
his visitor, nor by the visitor's cour- 
teous acknowledgment of His own 
position as a great teacher. With 
incisive boldness Jesus declared 
that this man, a cultured and dis- 
tinguished ruler of the Jews, must 
be born again if he is to see the 
kingdom of God. 

God is no respecter of persons. 
This "doctor of divinity" must be 
born again, just as was the illiterate 
fisherman. The requirements are 
the same for all, and the necessity 
as great in one level of society as 
in another. 

The surprising thing is that this 
teacher of theology could be so ig- 
norant of the one essential element 
of a real spiritual experience. He 
evidently thought he could bring tils 
soul to eternal life by his own works, 
when in fact he was not able to give 
himself physical— let alone spiritual 

Two reasons are given by oiu: 
Lord for the "must" of verse 7: (1) 
The kingdom of God is a spiritual 
kingdom, and cannot be entered by 
way of our human nature; and (2) 
"that which is born of the flesh is 
flesh" and is radically and essential- 
ly bad. To learn why the flesh is 
bad read Jeremiah 13:23 and Gala- 
tians 5:19-21. Scripture on this point 
is diametrically opposed to the 
teaching of unbelieving men. When 
such a difference arises be sure of 
this— God's Word is right Follow it! 
II. The Nature of Regeneration 
(vv. 8-13). 

The new birth is a divine mystery, 
not fathomable by human reason. 
Those who insist that all spiritual 
truth be put through the little norm 
of their intelligence will never im- 
derstapiil it or receive its blessing. 
The Swiking illustration of the life- 
giving and energizing wind used by 
our Lord is most illuminating. Wind 
is unseen, jut the results of its 
movement are evident. Even so the 
spiritual rebirth of men is an enigma 
to the worldly man, but even he can 
see its results in godly llvhig. 

Observe the clarity and simplicity 
of our Lord's teaching on what is 
undoubtedly the most profound sub- 
ject in all the world. Let us follow 
His example and always "make the 
message clear and plain, Christ re- 
celveth sinful men!" 

m. The Method of Regeneration 
(w. 14-16). 

Many there are who ask Nicode- 
mus' question, "How can these 
things be?" (v. 9). The answer is 
clear- "Only by faith in the Son of 
God, our Saviour." 

Just as there was healing and life 
In a look at the uplifted serpent 
(Num. 21:8), so there is Ufe for a 
look at the Crucified One. Faith re- 
ceives God's perfect provision for 

John 3:16 may well be regarded 
as the greatest sentence in the 
greatest Book in the world. It pre- 
sents the whole plan of salvation- 
its source, its ground, its recipients, 
its condition, and its result. It also 
reveals God's love— its "object, 
character, manifestation, purpose, 
and the result" (John W. Bradbury). 
This glorious salvation is for all 
men — "whosoever"— but some re- 
ject it Notice that God does not 
condemn them. Their own evil 
works and desires condemn them 
(w. 17-20). God in His grace is 
ready and willing to save, but men

Buyers Will Pay More 
For Your Clean Eggs 

Frequent Gathering Also 
Aids in Reducing Soilage 

Consumers willing to pay high 
prices will not readily accept eggs 
that are soiled. 

The poultryman who markets 
dirty eggs must sell to less dis- 
criminating buyers at lower 
prices. Records stiow that soiled 
eggs bring from 7 to 12 cents 
less per docen than clean eggs 
of the same quality. 

Soilage of eggs can be reduced 
with only a little care in addition 
to that usually exercised by good 
poultrymen. A few simple practices, 
generally applied, would make ev- 
ery egg produced this year clean 
and attractive in appearance. 

A deep litter on the floor of the 
laying house and roost poles screened 
with poultry wire to keep them from 
walking on the soiled dropping

boards, will prevent eggs from be- 
ing soiled by dirty feet. 

At least one large nest is need- 
ed for every five hens 'to pre- 
vent excessive "tralHc" per 
nest. If the nests are made of 
good clean material, such as ex- 
celsior, shavings, or straw, 
breakage of eggs will be re- 
duced and clean whole eggs will 
not be stained by broken ones. 

Gathering the eggs frequently — at 
least three times a day — will reduce 
the time of their exposure to soilage. 
U an egg becomes soiled, it can 
be cleaned by applying baking soda 
with a damp cloth, and allowed to 
dry thoroughly before casing. 

When the eggs are ready for 
crating, pack them hi clean con- 
tainers. It will be found the 
appearance of eggs makes a 
great deal of difference in their 
value on the market. 

/^NE of my favorite athletes for 
^-' some 20 years has been a fellow 
by the name of Heartley Anderson- 
better known as Hunk. 

With George Halas, former coach 
and owner of the Chicago Bears, 
now in war service. 
Hunk is one of the 
head co-coaches. 

Pound for pound, 
Hunk is the tough- 
est physical speci- 
men I've ever 
known, and that in- 
cludes Joe Louis 
and Strangler Lew- 
is. As a guard un- 
der Knute Rockne, 
weighing 170 
pounds, Hunk made 
240 pounders surren- 
der and leave the field. They want- 
ed no part of Hunk, who, in addition 
to amazing quickness and unusual 
strength, always has had outstand- 
ing fighting spirit. 

He was the type they might kill- 
but never whip. 

An Anderson Angle 

This takes us back to the time 
Notre Dame decided to try out field 
hockey. A big squad had assem- 
bled—then Hunk appeared. His 
presence scattered most of the 
hockey squad. 

"Do you mean," one of them 
asked, "that I'm to play in a game 
in which they are giving Hunk An- 
derson a stick? I don't want any 
part of it." 

As a coach in the old days, Hunk 
may have been a better top ser- 
geant than a general of the Rockne 
type, buj, that still goes as a tribute. 
He certainly never has had a su- 
perior as a line coach. 

He was given the impossible Job 
at Notre Dame of following Knute

His Toughest Job

"I made one big mistake," Hunk 
told me later. "I thought the Civil 
war was over. I soon found that 
my Southern line was tackling and

Fiber Plants 

A half dozen fiber plants, growing 
mostly in the southern states seem 
to offer some possibilities for indus- 
trial use as stuffings, mattings and 
brushes. The drawback is in com- 
peting with wild grasses growing on 
other continents wiiich can be har- 
vested by cheap labor and imported 
here at low cost. 

Kapok will grow in the ex- 
treme southern part of Florida. 
It is much liktd for upholstery 
and pillow stuffing. Palmetto, 
from this section, will produce 
a useable fiber. A few thousand 
tons of Spanish moss, growing 
on southern trees, are collected 
each year and sold as a substi- 
tute for curled horse hair in up- 

The cabbage palmetto is used in 
the manufacture of brushes. Some 
slough grass is cut along the Mis- 
sissippi river, dried and used in 
matting manufacture. Jute will also 
grow in the southern states and Es- 
parto will grow in southern Califor- 
nia, but these can not compete in 
price with the cheap jute from India 
and the wild Esparto from north- 
ern Africa. 

Eventually, all these less impor- 
tant plants as well as our important 
agriculture products will be thor- 
ougUy investigated at the new re- 
gional laboratories wliich have been 
established by the govenunent to 
search for new and wider industrial 
uses for farm products. 

Farm Notes 

The U. S. crop of soybeans in 1942 
is estimated at 14,2417b00 acres, as 
compared with 9,996,000 acres in 
1941. . 

« • • > 

One way of meeting the farm la- 
bor shortage is to determine to 
produce high crop yields. Good seed 
beds, fertilizer, adapted seed, and 
excellent cultural practices win p^- 
nilt higher production on fewer 

The Strong Man 

I doubt that football has ever pro- 
duced a stronger man than Eddie 
Hart, Princeton's old football cap- 
tain, now installed as a major in 
the marines. His strong man rival 
was Eddie Glass of Yale. The new 
marine is no kid. He was Prhice- 
ton's leader back in 1910 and 1911, 
when he played with a broken neck 
protected by a special leather har- 

Now over 50, he is still in fine 
physical shape and still one of the 
strongest men I know. Something 
after the manner of Fudge Heffel- 
finger, who was still a football star 
at 53 and not so bad at 65 when he 
played a full period in a charity 

Two Eddie Hart examples— the 
night he won a bet that three All- 
Americans in the room couldn't 
bowl him over as he stood on one 
foot— the day in Paris during the 
last war when a 195-pound football 
pal called from the second floor of 
a Paris hotel— "I'm jumping, Eddie, 
eatch me." Hart caught him. 

The marines get a true marine in 
Eddie Hart. 

Eddie Hart coached the Army 
football team that played in Paris 
after the Armistice. Eddie Mahan 
was on that Army squad. "It was 
after this game," Hart told me, 
"that Marshal Foch said, 'Any army 
that plays this game is already well 
trained for war. It is a game that 
belongs to the strong and the fast 
and to those who must think under 
pressure. It is the type of competi- 
tive sport an army needs.' " 


Col. Bob Neyland remarked a 
short while back that when you can 
get a team np to 80 per cent ef- 
ficiency in blocking and tackling yon 
have about reached the summit of 
human expectancy. 

This is true, with a few excep- 

Holy Cross passed 90 per cent in 
tiiis respect against Boston College, 
and Washington's Redsidns were 
close to 100 per cent against the 
beaten Bears. 

I've never seen a team that 
tackled harder, blocked harder or 
ran harder, going ail out, than the 
Redskins did against the Bears. 

They had a record wound to cure 
that had been festering ° for two 
years, 73 to 0, and you could see on 
practically every play they meant 
to effect the cure. f 

Here was full proof of what a foot- 
ball team can do when it 'becomes 
emotionally aroused. 

Here was the answer to many of 
the season's upsets — to the way Au- 
burn felt about Georgia and Holy 
Cross felt aboaf Boston College. 

Coyote has a crafty brain; 
His wits are sharp his ends to gain. 

"T^IfERE is nothing in the world 
■•■ more true than this. Old Man 
Coyote has the craftiest brain of 
all the little people of the Green 
Forest or the Green Meadows. Sharp 
as are the wits of old Granny Fox, 
they are not quite as sharp as the 
wits of Old Man Coyote. If you 
want to fool him you will have to get 
up very early in the morning and 
then it is more than likely that you 
will be the one fooled, not he. There 
is very little going on around him 
that he doesn't know about. But 
once in a while something escapes 
him. The coming of Paddy the 
Beaver to the Green Forest wa« one 
of these things. He didn't know a 
thing about Paddy until Paddy had 
finished his dam and his house 
and was cutting his supply of food 
for the winter. 

You see, it was this way: When 
the Merry Little Breezes of Old 
Mother West Wind first heard the 
news of what was going on in the 
Green Forest and hurried around 
over the Green Meadows and through 
the Green Forest to spread the news, 
as is their way, they took the great- 
est>-pains not to even hint it to Old 
Man Coyote, because they were 
afraid that he would make trouble 
and perhaps drive Paddy away. 

But after a while Old Man Coyote 
noticed that the little people of the 
Green Meadows were not about 
as much as usual. They seemed to

have a secret of some kind. He 
mentioned the matter to his friend 
Digger the Badger. Digger had 
been so intent on his own aftairs that 
be hadn't noticed anything unusual, 
but when Old Man Coyote mentioned 
the matter he remembered that 
Blacky the Crow headed straight for 
the Green Forest every morning, 
and several times he had seen Sam- 
my Jay flying in the same direction 
as if in a great hurry to get some 

Old Man Coyote grinned. "That's 
ail I need to know, friend Digger." 
With that off Old Man Coyote 
started. But he was too sly and 
crafty to go straight to the Green 
Forest. He pretended to hunt 
around over the Green Meadows, 
just as he usually did, all the time 
working nearer and nearer to the 
Green Forest. When he reached the 
edge of it he slipped in among the 
trees and when he felt sure that no 
one was likely to see him he began 
to run this way and that way with 
his nose to the ground. 
•"Ha!" he exclaimed presently. 
"Reddy Fox has been this way late- 

Pretty soon he found another trail. 
"So," said he, "Peter Rabbit has 
been over here a good deal of late." 
So Old Man Coyote followed Peter's 
trail and so presently came to the 
pond of Paddy the Beaver. "Ha!" 
said he as he looked out and saw 
Paddy's new house. "So there is a 
newcbmer to the Green Forest! I 
have always heard that Beaver is 
very good eating. My stomach l>e- 
gins to feel empty this very min- 
ute." His mouth began to water 
and a fierce hungry look shone in 
his yellow eyes. 

It was just then that Sammy Jay 
saw him and began to scream at 
the top of his lungs, so that Paddy 
the Beaver over in his house heard 
him. Old Man Coyote knew that it 
was of no use to stay with Sammy 
Jay about, so he took a hasty look 
about and found where Paddy came 
ashore to cut his food. Then, shak- 
ing his fist at Sammy Jay he started 
straight "back for the Green Mead- 
ows. "I'll just pay a visit here in 
the night," said he, "and give Mr. 
Beaver a surprise while he is at

Train Anather Battalion for 
U. S. Military Railway 



Rev. C. G. Dearing and wife

Jockey Sunday afternoon. 

Lnjo^ Normal. Gear;" 

Because of the highly successful 
manner in whih the Southern 
Railway System trained its own 
727th Engineer Battalion, the first 
of several railroads battalions or- 
ganized to operate military rial- 
roads, the War Department has 
.':elected the Southern for the 
training of another Battalion, it 
has been announced by Brigadier 
General Carl R. Gray, Jr., Gen- 
eral Manager of the United States 
Military Railway Service. 

"We have selected the 715th 
Operating Battalion (affiliated 
with, officered by, and with a 
great many of the enlisted men 
from the lUinios Central Railway) 
^ the battalion that we wou'd 
like to train on the rails of the 
Southern Railway in exactly the 
same manner as we have 
satisfactorily completed the train- 
ing of the 727th," stated General 
Gray. "The spirit has been so 
fine: the character and excellence 
of the instruction and demon- 
by the Southern Railway System 
employees has ijeen so wonderful, 
that I have every belief that they 
will gladly accept this greater re- 
sponsibility which they are now 
asked to assume." 

The 715th Operating Battalion 
will receive basic training in all 
phases of railway operation „ on 
the Southern's line between Meri- 
dian, Miss., and New Orleans, La., 
where the 727th underwent train- 
ing during the latter part of 1942. 
Headquarters will be located at 
Hattiesburg. Miss. 

In a commendatory letter to 
Harry A. DeButts, vice president 
in charge of operation of the 
Southern Railway System, Gen- 
eral Gray said: 

"I am taking this means of 
addressing you, with the hope that 
you will find a way to indicate to 
each individual employee their 
Government's and my personal 
gratitude and appreciation for 
their successful cooperation, co- 
ordination and assistance in the 
training of the 727th Battalion. 
They truly have heen soldiers: 
they truly have been Americans; 
and they are entitled to and do

And Subsidies 

Householders with lojur Incomei 
frozen for the duration, looked to 
Washington for further developments 
on a reported program to allow food 
prices to rise rather than to have 
the government continue subsidies 
to farmers. ^ ■■ . - 


This report Indicated that such a 
poUcy is graduaUy being put into ef- 
feet and that subsidies will be con- 
tinued only where necessary to keep 
up farm production. If so, this pro- 
gram represents a change from that 
carried out under Leon Henderson 
who even "went around' 
to reach his subsidy goal 

At one time he asked congress for 
a half biUion dollars to carry out a 
subsidy plan and keep food prices 
down. This was rejected and the 
government began to use funds of 
the Commodity Credit corporation to 
maintain temporary subsidies. 

TTie new policy would have two 
main objectives: 

1. To keep down the national debt 
by not allowing further subsidy pay- 
ments from the federal treasury, 

2. Would make consumers stand 
their share in a price raise. (It is 
argued that there is a great surplus

Thonday, Jaanary 14, 1143 

President Eoosevelt examines a huge globe of the world, which was 
presented t* him by the army. The globe, which is 50 Inches in diameter, 
•hows in considerable detail strategic areas of the earth's surface It 
occupies a prominent plaee In the President's ofBce In the White House. 

Of Russians Drive 

While the world marveled at the 
military might af the Russians which 
was able to push the Nazis back all 
•long the battle front the fiill sig- 
nificance of this winter campaign 
was overlooked by many. Should 
the offensive maintain its momen- 
tum of the early days of the new 
year Hitler's troops faced the definite 
prospect of retiring to lines they held 
In the last World war. 

On both ends af the long fighting 
tront the Russians were scoring ma- 
jor triumphs. In the north, the vital 
German-held supply base and rail 
center of Velikie Luki had fallen to 
the Soviet army. (Velikie Luki is 
only 200 miles from East Prussia.) 
In this sectar the big threat was to 
the Nazis massed before Leningrad, 
because if the Russians pushed be- 
yond Velikie Luki toward that strong- 
hold aU the Germans in the area 

would be cut off from supplies. Fur- 
ther extending the picture, military 
experts foresee the necessary evacu- 
artion of Estonia and northern Latvia. 


Bu: while niuch of this Cantpalgn 
in the north was speculation, Rus- 
sian might had already dealt a series 
of crushing blows to the Germans 
massed in front of StaUngrad and 
in the Caucasus. Success here came 
as the result of a bold strategic move 
on the part of Josef Stalin and Gen- 
eral Zhukofl. For when these Rus- 
sian leaders decided that Germany 
kad about spent her might in the all- 
■eut effort to capture Stalingrad they 
tmleashed a counter-offensive direct- 
ly before the city. Soon they learned 
tbat the Germans had few reserves 
between the Volga and the Don riv- 
ers. Thus the Russians took heart 
•ad pushed westward toward the 
all-important city of Rostov. 

Capture of Rostov would mean the 
•ntrapment of a mUllon Nazis In the 
Caucasus. Hitler realized this and 
•tarted a general movement of his 
troops in that sector. But again the 
Russians attacked and were success- 
ful in capturing naany Important 
points while ilriviag the Nazis ever 
backward from their last year's goal 
—the oil fields of Grozay and Baka 


Allied Successes 

Although the Allies won fte battle 
of Buna, clearing that New Guinea 
area of Jap troops, activiUes in the 
South Pacific showed no signs of 
lessening. Jap resistance continued 
unabated in other areas. 

Later communiques from General 
MacArthur's headquarters told of a 
successful heavy bombing attack 
upon a strong Japanese naval con- 
centration at Rabaul, New Britain. 
Flying over the target, Flying Fori- 
resses and Liberators scored direct 
hits with 1,000 pound bombs on eight 
Jap merchantman and supply ves- 
sels. Another 1,000 pounder smashed 
into a destroyer tender, alongside 
which a destroyer was tied. All were 
left sinking or burning. 

A government ofl^cial in Mel- 
bourne, Australia, announced that 
the largest armada of transports, 
supply vessels and warships yet sent 
by Japan into the Southwest Pacific 
was being assembled at various 
points under cover of bad weather. 
The concentration meant one of 
three things, he said: 1. An 
to retake Henderson a 
Guadalcanal 2. An eff< 

But the householder whose income 
is not from war work and has not 
been increased because of the war 
boom was caught squarely in the 
middle. He found no comfort In the 
fact that food prices had risen 16 per 
cent in the year ending last October 
and that in November they had risen 
another 1.2 per cent. Later figures 
were not available for him to fret 

'Not Recalled' 

Chang Tao-fan, Chinese minister 
of information, has emphatically de- 
nied that Lieut. Gen. Hsiung Shih- 
fel, head of the Chinese military 
mission to the United States, has 
been recalled. 

After (General Hsiung conferred 
recently with President Roosevelt, 
It was reported unofficially that 
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek had 
recalled the military mission be- 
cause he was dissatisfied with Amer- 
ican aid to (3ilna. 

Chang said that Hsiung's visit to 
London— and even a trip to C^hung- 
king— was merely hi the normal 
course of events. Hsiung will re- 
turn to the United States, the min- 
ister of information said.

Washington, D. C. 
As the ship of state pulls out of 
the holiday doldrums, skipper and 
crew are setting their jaws for rough 
weather. There are cross currents 
ahead in the new congress which 
are going to set the old ship rocking. 
Symbolic of conflicting move- 
ments, the debate of which will soon 
be filling the Congressional Record, 
are these two: A proposed bill to 
bring labor unions into the restrict- 
ing pale of legislation such as busi- 
ness has to contend with under the 
anti-trust laws, and a social security 
program which some say will out- 
Beveridge England's new Beveridge 
plan. That program. Its author. Sir 
William Beveridge says, is "in some 
ways a revolution." 

The "holiday doldrums" I men- 
tioned were not entirely a seasonal 
affair this year. There was the usu- 
al letdown while congress went home 
and the nation turned to festal 
thoughts. There was also a pre- 
meditated lull which was necessi- 
tated by the turnover in the last 
election. The administration knew 
that no matter what was done in 
the Interim between November and 

relatives; would provide a working 
woman with a bonus when she mar- 
ried so she wouldn't be penalized 
for enjoying connubial bliss. All 
this would be done on the principle 
of ordinary commercial insurance 
except that the government would 
run the machinery, both labor and 
capital would contribute as such and 
the people as a whole, in accordance 
with their hicome, would pay a share 
tlirough taxes. 

who handled this legislation, agreed •'^*"""'7. it would, in some measure,

J «,: , .^ . , . .r Democrats and the increased Re- 
publican minority got together in the

things the Truman probers will ex-

Production Doubled 

On Capitol Hill 

Over were the colorfuj opening 
■••sions of the new 78th congress 
and the national legislators had set- 
tled down to the tough job ahead. 
Yet a new spirit — some observers 
called it a "spirit of Independence" 
—hung over Capitol HUl. 

On the biggest objective of all— 
the winning of the war— there was 
tinity between the two parties. 
There, however, unity ended. 

Support of the administration In 
most of its home policies would no 
doubt be forthcoming from the Dem- 
ocratic side af both houses but there 
would be no quick "write your own 
ticket" edicts of power to the execu- 
tive branch. Like their Republican 
brethren, the Democrats were in a 
"show me" mood as far as domestic 
programs were concerned. 

So small was the control of the 
Democratic party that anything 
could and more than likely would 
happen. Republicans had their eyes 
•n 1944 and were pledged to strictly 
■pbold the position of an opposition 
party «n matters affecting the home 

inforce Jap units at Sanananda point 
in New Guinea. 3. An effMl to 
strengthen Jap defensive positions in 
the entire area. 


Encouraging news came from 
Guadalcanal island when American 
troops took from the Japanese im- 
portant heights flanking the south 
western rim of the United States po- 
sition in that sector. It was thought 
the advance may have signalized the 
beginning of a campaign to drive 
the enemy out of artillery range of 
the Solomon island air field. Six Jap 
counterattacks were repulsed with a 
loss of 150 enemy dead. 

Gen. Clark in Command 

Another step in the organization 
of huge Allied forces for the assault 
on Tunis and Bizerte In North Africa 
was made with the announcement 
that the United SUtes fifth army haa 
been acUvated and Lieut Gen. Mark 
W. Clark placed in command of the 
new force. 

General Clark, 4«, la the hero who. 
traveling by submarine to North Af- 
rica three weeks before the Allied 
landings, held a secret rendezvous 
with French officers. 

The announcement Indicated that 
a large United States army of sev- 
eral divisions has been organized 
through its rank and is ready to fight 
alongside Lieut Gen. K. A. N. An- 
derson's first army in Tunisia. The 
size of the army was not indicated. 
It may mean a force of as few as 
two or three divisions, although it 
may reach 10 or 12 divisions. 

Meanwhile the United States army 
air force struck strong blows in sup- 
port of French and American ground 
forces in central Tunisia. Railroad 
yards were bombed at Kairouan and 
other targets were smashed at Cheri- 
chera, five mile* northeast of 

Bad weather continued to keep the 
opposing armies comparatively in- 
active In the north. Observers said 
that French troops, with a complete 
disregard tor poliUca and ancient 
equipment, are fighting with great 
gallantry in central and southern

It hasn't been oiflcially announced 
yet but when Madame Chiang Kai- 
shek, "Generalissimistress of China" 
emerges from the hospital, she plans 
to come to Washington and camp at 
the White House until she has per- 
suaded FDR to pass the ammuni- 

Madame Chiang is a very per- 
suasive person. She combines ori- 
ental charm with a WeUesley edu- 
cation. Unquestionably she will be- 
come China's "ambassador-ln-eflect" 
ii. Wi|shinafc>n. (Already Chinese 
Ambassador " Wei is wondering 
whether he or Madame Chiang real- 
ly represents the Chinese govern- 

But while there may be some 
doubt on that there is absolutely no 
doubt that China wants more planes 
and wants them quickly. This time, 
it is not the appeal of a desperate 
people, but of a people ready to take 
the offensive. Chinese military ex- 
perts declare that they could do 
more damage to Japan with one 
plane than British and Americans 
could do with two hi the Solomons 
or the East Indies. 

Reason is, that they can engage 
the enemy in great numbers, for all 
eastern China is occupied by Japan, 
whereas her forces in the Pacific 
are scattered from island to Island. 
Immediate objectlire of the Chi- 
nese drive— if they are allowed to 
make it— w^ll be Hankow. 

Madame Chiang will argue that 
capture of Hankow would disorgan- 
ize the entire transportation system 
by which the Japanese ship supplies 
overland to Indo-China and Burma. 
1944 b Tea Late. 
Madame Chiang also has another 
powerful argument up her sleeve- 
that 1944 wiU be too late. The sched- 
ule now adopted by the United Na- 
tions high command to knock off Hit- 
ler first and then turn on Hirohito In 
1944, is regarded by the Chinese as 
a dangerous and unsound strategy. 
Month by month, the Japanese are 
consolidating. They are bringing 
together the rubber, tin, and oil 
of the East Indies, with the iron and 
coal of north China, and welding an 
Industrial system which will be able 
to run indefinitely. No longer will 
scrap iron be necessary from the 
outside world. 

If given time, Madame Chiang will 
argue, the Japs will complete the 
gaps in the rail lines between Singa- 
pore and China, and thus have an 
overland transportation route, aafe 
from submarines. Then no matter 
how strong the British and Ameri- 
can navies, they will be no more able 
to dent Jap supply lines than the 
Japs can dent our communications 
between Saa Francisco and New

ment Madame Chiang Kai-shek will

Stop-Gap Arranged 

Since manpower is the prime con- 
sideration of the moment a stop-gap 
was arranged. With much fanfare 
Manpower Commissioner McNutt 
was given new powers and a far- 
fiung program was ballyhooed. But 
it was mostly ballyhoo and Just be- 
fore Christmas wide publicity was 
given to a document which was ob- 
viously the forewarning that much 
stricter regimentation of labor was 
In the wind. The long-postponed, 
but inevitable, national service act 
raised Its head agaia 

The document was a draft of a 
bill made by Grenville Clark, an at- 
torney who suddenly emerged as a 
presidential advisor. It was an- 
nounced that he made a special trip 
to England to study the British man- 
power setup. Clark remained silent 
until Just before Christmas and after 
congress had gone home, but every 
congressman received a copy of the 
proposed legislation. 

About two weeks earlier, shortly 
after the Beveridge report was 
made public, a cabinet officer was 
heard to remark: "We've got to get 
busy and draw up a program that 
fits America's heeds a little better 
than the Beveridge plan would." 

But the lull was still lulling then 
and when the President was asked 
at a press and radio conference if 
he were preparing a message for 
congress on the subject- that was 
about the time of the remark of the 
cabinet member— he said "no." 

The Beveridge plan was the nat- 
ural result ot the Battle of Briuin. 
Then a common danger brought the 
British people closer together. The 
underfed, underclothed and under- 
housed had to be taken care of. 
Qass lines don't exist in tiie sham- 
bles. A bombed-out duchess can 
be as cold and hungry as a waif. 
The poor suddenly realized that if 
they could be taken care of as well 
or better In an emergency, they 
ought to have a UtUe better distribu- 
tion of the ordinary decencies of life 
in prosperous peace times. Wise 
leaders didn't wait until the war was 
over to face angry demands which 
might turn into real revolution. Sir 
William Beveridge's committee drew 
up the blueprint for what they called 
"a British revolution" In the coun- 
try's eeokooiic setup under which, 
as one spokesman described it "the 
people would contribute by their 
own preference, to a national insur- 
ance fund rather than take a hand- 
out from the state.' 

The plan is not new. But it is a 
considerable extension of the present 
security laws such as Britain has 
had for a long time and such as Uie 
New Deal brought to America*. 

No sane American politician, no 
matter how far he leaned to the 
conservative side, would suggest re- 
pealing America's social security 
laws. It couldn't be done. But the 
controversy will arise in congress 
when attempts are made, as they 
will be, to extend the benefits, both 
as to amounts paid and to new 
categories of workers. Such exten- 
sions are contemplated in the plan 
now cooking hi Washington. 

Labor Regulation 

That is one trend we can look for. 
Running counter to It on the surface, 
but really also shooting at the 
"greatest good for the greatest num- 
ber" is the trend toward regulati«»n 
of organized labor. Probably a dozen 
bills have been drawn up, all of 
which tend to put the screws on labor 
unions. Many liberals feel that the 
unions have it coming. The growing 
number of strikes In wartime, when 
maximum production is a matter of 
patriotism as well as necessity, the 
existing union rules which tend to 
interfere with maximum produc- 
tion, the various "restraints" con- 
sidered as evil as the "restraint of 
trade" resulting from monopolies, 
all have been highlighted by war 
condiUons. Bills wiU be presented 
to root out these ills. Much of the 
restriction of unions could be avoid- 
ed if the unions cleaned their own 

In America, as to England, when 
a nation is called upon to make the 
sacrifices demanded by this war, It 
can be expected that the people 
will tosist on a democratic distribu- 
tion of opportunity and reward of 
effort when peace comes. The war 
will also have Uught that maximum 
production means maximum pros- 
perity. There are plenty of people 
to consume peacetime products; 
there are plenty of natural resources 
whose development can furnish the 
Jobs for the consumers and provide 
the pay which makes It possible 
for them to buy what is produced. 
Any group or Institution— farm, la- 
bor, management— which stands in 
the way of this maximum production 
is bound to have Its wtogs clipped. 
Meanwhile, the people will demand 
and get greater "assurance" against 
rainy days, which come even when 
prosperity Is with us. And in pro- 
vidtog it, If Britain comes along, 
America cannot be far behind.

West Point at War 

By MaJ. Gen. Francis B. Wilby 
(Sopt, »t Weit Point Academy) 

Being a newspaper colnmnlst and 

reporter is a new experience for me. 
However, I feel that I can give you 
a "Reporter's Report to the Nation" 
from West Point, which should be 
of interest to every red-blooded 

I wish that everyone could visit 
West Point for just one day, and 
■ee what I see. You would get an 
Inspiration that you cannot help but 
feel when you see the men of the 
Corps and what they are doing. They 
BDe-Jiot only fitting themselves for 
wmnihff^is war, but also for win- 
ning the peace, and preventing, if 
I>ossible, the recurrence of such an- 
other world conflagration as we are 
passing through today. 

As you know, a cross-section of 
American youth Is selected from all 
parts of the country to come to West 
Point. They are selected by the 
most democratic of methods, many 
of them by winning competitive ex- 

Starting with these young men, we 
aim to develop a rlgoronsly trained 
Boldier-offlcer, a Job which la great- 
ly faciliUted by the fact that the 
Cadets themselves sincerely desire 
to make the most of the opportunity 
they have here. With the rapidly 
changing weapons and new methods 
developed in modem warfare, we 
are constantly working to keep up 
to date and give the latest, most 
accurate information and training 
to the Cadets. 

WALTER WINCHELL /, „„ a tern 
of dutr outMii* Coutintnttl U. S. During 
bia »bM*aei, coatributot* will aubttitat*. 

The Cadets learned and were do- 
ing everything • thoroughly trained 
enlisted man ought to be able to do, 
and before the Summer was over, 
they looked like veterans. 

Summer maneuvers don't end the 
story of tough training at West Point 
Summer maneuvers are Just a phase 
of the year-round program which is 
built to train fighting leaders. 

Every minute of the 16-hour day 
(6 a. m. to 10 p. m.) is filled by a 
tight schedule of instruction, study, 
and athletics plus tactical training 
in the arms and branches of the 
Service. The program is designed 
to turn out officers schooled In all 
typas of army operation, and each 
Cadet is familiarized with the use of 
•very weapon from the pistol to the 

So one can see the West Pointer 
Is TOUGH— physically and mentally. 
He has to be. 

At the close of the Sommer, the 

Cadets came back into the class- 
rooms for what we call academics. 
During the Winter months emphasis 
is placed upon academic instruction 
while the schedule in tactical train- 
ing is somewhat reduced. 

A reporter probably would say 
that we have a highly mathematical 
and still engineering course. Per- 
haps that is right, but the West Point 
curriculum aims at teaching a man 
to think, to reason, and to draw 
sound conclusions expressed clearly 
and concisely. Mathematics and the 
sciences provide this training of the 
mind which we believe is so essen- 
tial in order to produce the finest 
military leaders. 

I am happy to announce that this 
week the West Point Instruction is 
being given a first-hand inspection 
by some of the leading educators in 
our country. I have invited Doctor 
Compton, President of the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology, and 
Doctor Hopkins, President of Dart- 
mouth, along with the principal mili- 
tary experts on training in our Army 
today. Major General Bull of the Re- 
placement Training Center of the 
Ground Forces, Brigadier Huebner 
of the Training Division of the Serv- 
ices of Supply, Brigadier General 
Edwards of the Training Division of 
the War Department General Staff, 
and Colonel Schlatter of the Flyhig 
Training Command of the Army Air 
Forces, to meet, confer and review 
our plans for the new 3-year course 
at the Military Academy. With this 
course we propose to produce a 
graduate of West Point who will have 
the finest education and training 
it is possible to afford in the time 
available. By constantly keeping 
abreast of the latest developments, 
we aim to do the job wiiich America 
and Americans have asked us to do. 

In the days of Robert E. Lee and 
U. S. Grant, West Point produced 
men to meet the challenge of that 
era. John J. Pershing fulfilled his 
task In the days of the Kaiser. 

During the past Summer over 2,000 
West Pointers went through the most 
rigorous field maneuvers that have 
been held in the history of the Acad- 
emy. Every phase of combat train- 
ing was given the Cadets. They 
worked, they sweated, they maneit- 
vered over the hills and through the 
rivers of northwest New Yoric Stoto, 
as wen as here at West Pobit They 
had a good taste of how modem 
campaigns are fought. 

During these maneuvers some €i 
ttM toughest combat problems were 
carried out tqr the Cadets.

Famous Mule Dies 

ONE of the most famous mules In 
American history died the oth- 
er day. Myrtle was her name and 
when her service of more than a 
third of a century to the United 
States army ended at Fort Hua- 
chuca. Aril., she was cremated with 
full military honors. 

Not only was Myrtle the olde»t 
mule in the army at the time of her 
death, but she had another distinc- 
tion. She was once the subject of a 
special order issued by Gen. John 
J. Pershing that when her days of 
usefulness were over, she was not 
to be destroyed (as Is usually the 
case with army mules) but was to 
be permitted to die a natural death. 
That was because Myrtle was the 
last survivor of the pack train which 
accompanied "Black Jack" into 
northern Mexico back In 1917 when 
he was engaged in his chase of 
Pancho VUla after that Mexican 
leader had led the raid on Colum- 
bus, N. M. Two years ago, when 
Myrtle was 33 years old, she became 
dangerously ill and a veterinarian 
suggested shooting her. But Col. 
Lee Davis, then post commander 
at Fort Huachuca, remembered 
General Pershing's order and the 
mule was spared to enjoy two more 
years of ease on the "retired list." 

However, the honors heaped upon 
Myrtle are not the first that have 
been bestowed upon one of the long- 
eared, and highly important, "ad- 
juncts" of Uncle Sam's fighting 
forces. On October 8, 1937, Jack, 
another veteran of the Mexican bor- 
der troubles, was officially, retired 
from service at the age of 29 and 
on that occasion the 62nd coast ar- 
tillery (anti-aircraft) regiment staged 
a full-dress review at Fort Totten, 
N. Y., In his honor. 

At that time the CJiicago Dally 
News commented editorially: 

"The review is said to be the first 
tendered to a mule as guest of honor 
in the New York area. That may 
be so, but it Is not the first offlcial 
honor given the army mule. 

"History and tradition are fuU of 
such honors, begiiming, perhaps, 
with the brevet awarded the leader 
of the Civil war herd that stam- 
peded and routed a Confederate at-

Stretch That Meat! 

"Cinching up" a pack mole — from 
a drawing by Frederic Remingten, 
illastrating "On Frontier Service," 
by Lieut. G. W. Van Deasen in the 
Outing Magazine, December, 1895. 

tack in the vicinity of Chattanooga. 
Then there was the mule that tum- 
bled off a clifl while packed with a 
loaded Catling gun, the fire from 
which frightened off a band of In- 
dians in ambush. 

"There was Arizona, wounded in 
the Meuse-Argonne, who was deco- 
rated by the 30th infantry, and Whis- 
key, purchased by the 28th infantry 
when its service company was mo- 
torized, who was turned out to graze 
in a mule Valhalla at Fort Niagara. 
A more wholesale honor was 
paid at Washington, where a tablet 
commemorates the 243,135 mules of 
the American expeditionary forces. 
The army mule's endurance has 
been the subject of many encomi- 
ums. A first cavalry mule who 
somersaulted down an Idaho moim- 
tain and was left for dead, turned up 
in camp that night unharmed. 

"Perhaps we should not mention 
the mule that hospitalized most of a 
national guard machine gun com- 
pany on the border some years ago, 
and the mule whose kick cost the 
government a $10,000 insurance pay- 
ment, except that it reminds us that, 
even in these days of motorization 
and mechanization, there is still 
many a kick left in the old army 

That there is "many a kick left 
In the old army mule" yet is proved 
by the fact that, even in the "stream- 
lined" and mechanized modern 
American army, there is still a place 
for the mule. Visit Camp Carson 
near Colorado Springs, Colo., and 
there you will see the 98th field artil- 
lery with ite guns mounted on mule- 
back. That Is, you'll see it unless It's 
off on a hike such as the outfit took 
recently virhen its 793 men and 790 
mules climbed to the top of Pikes 
peak, thereby providing such a sight 
as that mountain has not seen in all 
the years since it was "discovered" 
by Lieut. Zebulon Pike away back 
in 1806! 

No list of famous mules would be 
complete without mention of 
Mademoiselle Verdun, mascot of the 
15th United States field artilleryi 
who was bom on April 16, 1918, in 
France, in the Troyoa sector while 
the Second division^ of which the 
15th artillery was then a part, was 
holding the lines near the site of 
the historic battle of VerdOa 
Mademoiselle Verdun wait through 
the Belleau Woods, Vaux, St Mihiel, 
Mont Blanc and Meuse-Argonne of- 
fensives with the regiment and ac- 
conipanied it when it marched into 
C^wmany after the Armistice. 

Today most of you homemakers 
find the meat situation actually test- 
ing your mettle. 
In your trips to 
the butcher's you 
may find many 
cuts of meat you 
haven't used of- 
ten in the past, 
and less and less 
of the cuU you 
know how to use and that your fam- 
ily has eaten rarely. But those are 
the meats available for your menus, 
and thus I'm going to give you some 
first aid in preparing them. 

Fortunately, the cheaper cuts of 
meat, along with liver and kidneys 
and the other entrails not included 
in the meat rationing program are 
as rich in proteins and minerals as 
their better known relatives. Cooked 
correctly, they can become as pop- 

"Extend the meat" should become 
the motto of every family for the 
duration. The way to do it is to 
include unrationed cute plentifully 
through the menus, use cereals and 
meat extenders such as oatmeal and 
bread crumbs on rationed cuts, and 
substitute fowl and cheese in the 
menu for steaks and chops as often 
as possible. 

Veal kidneys combine with beef 
in tills especially delightful and nu- 
tritious stew— and stretch that beef 
to serve eight people. It's a color- 
ful main dish with bright carrots 
and button mushrooms:

LESSON TEXT— John 4:27-42. 

GOLDEN TEXT— He that reapeth re- 
celveth wages, and gathtreth fruit unto 
life eternal.— John 4:36. 

Man's need is the same wherever 
and whoever he may be. The Christ 
who met the need of the distin- 
guished religious leader Nicodemus 
did the same for the poor sinful 
woman of Samaria. 

The incident at Jacob's well in 
Sychar took placfe when Jesus, leav- 
ing Jerusalem because ot increas- 
ing hindrance to His work, went up 
to GaUlee. Unlike His Jewish breth- 
ren, who detoured around the land 
of the hated "half-breed" Samari- 
tans, He "must needs go through 
Samaria," for there was a sin-siok 
soul that needed Him. 

Our lesson abotmds with instruc- 
tion regarding soul-winning, both in 
principle and in practice. We here 
And Jeaus: 

I. Winning a Sonl-Winner (w. 27- 

The faithful and kindly ministry 
of Christ led the woman to faith in 
Him as the Messiah. She left her 
water pot and ran at once into the 
city to share her new-found Joy with 
everyone she knew. 

Since the first expression of spirit- 
ual life is testimony, the one who 
brings a sinner to Christ not only 
saves a soul, but also wins a worker 
for Christ. One fears that we often 
assume that winning men to (3irist 
is enough. We should expect that 
the new light should shine forth Into 
the darlmess.' 

So we have a two-fold reason for 
soul-winning; saving a soul from 
perdition, and setting a life on Aire 
for testimony. It's a great business. 
Why don't we domor^ df It?

This work of soul-winning requires 
sustaining grace which this world 
cannot give. Jestis by His own ex- 
ample showed His disciples bow that 
strength comes from above. , 

He who had seated Himself at the 
well, tired and himgry, to await the 
return of the disciples with food, had 
been refreshed in the doing of the 
Father's will— in reaching this for- 
lorn woman. "The greatest thing 
that ever occurs hi the world is 
the transformation of a human soul, 
and the greatest Joy anyone can 
ever have is to act as the divine 
agent in bringing about such a 
transformation" (Douglass). 

There is another thing these soul- 
winners needed to learn — even as 
we need to learn and re-leam it— 
that the time to win souls is now. 
How prone the human being is to 
procrastinate. Tomorrow— next Sun- 
day—next week, we will speak to 
someone about his spiritual need 
Next year we will give more liber- 
ally for missions, or for the work 
of soul-winning in our local churchJ 
But "look on the fields." Do you 
not see "that they are ripe already 
unto harvest"? 

Again, soul-winners need to re- 
member our Lord's words In verses 
36-38. Not only the reapers receive 
the reward, but also those who sow 
and those who labor in order that 
the harvest may come. The man 
who plows is Just as important as 
the one who reaps— perhaps some 
would say more important. Some ot 
us who are called to be Giod's plow- 
men should remember that and be 
encouraged in our labors. 

Like the perfect leader that He 
was, Jesus did not require of His 
disciples what He did ncM do Him- 
self. So we find Him again in the 
work of evangelism. He practiced 
what He preached. 

m. Practlctaig Soal-Wlnnlng (w. 

Ttiere is real danger that those of 
us who have a measure of leader- 
ship in the church may be quick to 
tell others what they ought to do— 
and not do it ourselves. This Is 
particularly true in this matter at 
soul-winning. One Is apt to write, 
preach and teach about it and then 
neglect to do it 

The disciples had been lo town 
for bread. One wonders ^etbei 
they had talked to the storO'^eepei. . 
about Christ. Have you? 

Jesiis did not theorize about it- 
He really sought men for God The 
testimony of the woman He had won 
sent a host of people out from the 
city. He spoke to them the word of 
life and they believed. 

This was evidently "group evan- 
gelism" as distingHished from th« 
"personal evangelism" which woo 
the woman. 'They are both impor- 
tant •nd belong together. Some ars 
saying that the days of group evan- 
gelism are gone. We doubt that but 
certainly the days of personal cyan' 
gelism are always here. Let lu be 
busy about that kind of soul-wihning 
—and God may so bless that we will 
have a real revlvaL Are you ready 
for it? 

NOTE: Directions for making the 
hook ed rug In this sketch may be found 
on page 14 of youf eopy uf Buuk 9. DU w 
tlons for making the spool table at the 
left of this sketch are also In that book. 
The velvet covered frames for the 
pictures over the couch are in Book S, 
which also contains a description of the 
fcerles of booklets prepared by Mrs. Spean 
as a service to our readers. Address: 

T^HIS is the story of an old couch 
■■■ that bfccame glamorous and 
played a conspicuous part in a 
charming sunny living room. The 
transformation started with a 
heavy cotton twill fabric in a soft 
tan tone to match the background 
color of the hooked rug that you 
see in front of the couch. It was 
decided not to use any contrasting 
trimming but to accent the clean- 
cut box-like edges outlining the 
couch pad and cushions with a sec- 
ond seam on the outside. 

When the smartly tailored cover 
was completed it was fastened 
firmly in place with fippers of the 
type that come apart at the bot- 
tom-one side being stitched to the 
seam allowance of th'e cover and 
the other sewn to the couch pad. 
Next came the stiff cushions to 
stand up at the back. These were 
made with an inside core of news- 
papers tightly bound together with 
muslin bands and then padded 
with cotton batting, as shown.

Avoid Sharp Contrasts of Light 

and Shadow 

Ever notice how it tires your eyes to read under a single bright 
light when the rest of the room is in semi-darkness? The reason is 
that brightness causes the pupils of your eyes to contract while 
darkness causes them to expand. Every time you let your eyes str^y 
from your brightly-lighted book to the surrounding shadow area, 
your eyes try to adjust themselves to the change. Eventually this 
causes eyestrain and its accompaniment of fatigue and nervous 
muscular tension. For maximum eye comfort, you should not only 
have plenty of well-diffused light on your reading or sewing, but 
ample soft light elsewhere throughout the room. Good light, 
evenly distributed, adds to your reading enjoyment and also pro- 
tects precious eyesight.

THE 8TORY SO FAR: Ann Lee and 
Cole Cody, beneflclarlei under two identi- 
cal wUli made by Early BUI Cole, la 
irUeli he left eacli of tbem aU hti -money- 
and the King Cole Ranch, arrived In the 
Iowa ol Bald Eagle by lUge coach. Dur- 
lac the Journey they were held up by 
bandits and the driver and one other pai- 
•ODfer wounded. Arrlvtnc at Bald Ea- 
(le the wounded men were cared tor by 
Old Doc Joe At the Long Chance Cole 
Cody met Porflrlo Lopei, who Invited 
Cody to drink with him. Through I^opes 
k* learned of the death of Early BiU. 
VpoB arrival at King Cole Ranch, Ana 
Lee, accompanied by Aunt Jenifer, wai 
greeted by Ranee Waldron. 

New continue with the story. 


Ann came close to the stove. 
"What are we going to do?" she 
whispered. "He is related to Mr. 
Cole; he thinks he is the owmer now; 
he never heard of any will and — He 
is terribly food looking, isn't he. 
Aunt Jenny? I like him, don't you? 
And It's going to seem like steal- 
lag from him — " 

"So he is good looking, is he?" 
Miffed Aunt Jenifer, hunting the cof- 
fee pot "Well, so was our stjige 
friend of yesterday, Mr. Cody, 
wasn't he?" 

"Why. Aunt Jenny! You don't like 
l€r. Waldron I Why?" 

"I haven't said any such thing. 
And If you're asking why— well. Just 
you wait and watch, my pet He 
remembers t« wash his face and 
kands, and he remembers about 
breakfast— and he doesn't forget to 
■hut doors after him — and he doesn't 
forget to bar his door at night and 
pull the shades down— and what I 
want to know is this: Is he goin( 
U forget to put our horse in the 
ban and give it some bay I You 
Just lift up those heavy eye-lashes 
^ yours high enough so you can 
peek out of your eyes, and watch 
wiaat happens. And are you goln< 
to keep toting that satchel of yours 
around every step you take?" 
Abb clutched it the tighter. 
"I'm net going to let it out of my 
■ight, not for one little second, not 
iMtil that other key— Aunt Jenny I 
So you suppose that Ranee Waldron 
la ibe one with the other key? Why, 
tt. course he is! Being Mr. Early 
Bill's nephew—" 

"Soa of old Bill's cousin," cor- 
rocted Aunt Jenifer. "Or so he 

By the time Ranee Waldron re- 
tomed to them — and again they 
heard the soft closing of at least two 
doors marking his progress— the ta- 
ble was set under a sunny window 
and breakfast was ready. He was 
hatless this time and had combed 
his hair. He smiled and said brisk- 
ly, "Ahl This is the Ufel" Yet it 
sfruck the observant girl, sensitive 
to shades of expression, that it was 
Jast bis lips that smiled, and that 
there was a hint of sternness and of 
irritation in bis eyes. 

"So you came in by stage last 
Might?" he said as they sat down 
aad Aunt Jenifer [>oured the threo 
ctips of goo«i hot coffee and served 
him his breakfast 

Ann nodded, and told him of their 
adventure on the motmtain road, of 
Ike fallen tree and the attempted 
hold-up, warming to the recital as 
all its deUils thrilled through her 
again, making much of each little 
happening — omitting only any par- 
ticular reference to Mr. William 
Cole Cody. It was quite as though 
die had forgotten that such an in- 
dividual had ever existed. But when 
she had finished, and her aunt 
looked sharply at her and sniffed. 
her face turaed red. 

Ranee heard her out without in- 
terruption, then said thoughtfully, 
"It's a funny sort of thing, isn't it? 
Why do you suppose they wanted to 
■tick up the stage if it wasn't carry- 
ing a strong box? What do you sup- 
pose that the little man— What did 
you say his name was? Jenkins? — 
vtiiat do you suppose he bad on 

"We didn't find out," Ann told 
him. "He was badly hurt; he didn't 
■ay anything. It must have been a 
lot «f money, though, and the rob- 
bers must have known about it 

"Well, now with things as they 
are, what do you ladies plan? It 
must be a terrible disappointment 
for you not to find your intended 
boat here to receive you. Are you 
going home right away?" 

Ranee showed Ann the way into 
the patio, flooded now with golden 
■uashine, Aunt Jenifer saying, "You 
go ahead, Ann; I'll come along^'as 
■oon as I finish the dishes. Nol I 
don't want anybody in my way help- 
ing me!" 

"Do you mind," said Ranee when 
they were outside, "if I leave you a 
few moments? As I told you, I was 
going through a lot of pretty badly 
messed-up papers and accounts last 
■Ight Part of the mess I've got 
fairly well in mind right now; I 
think twenty minutes more with it 
and I could put it away ship-shape. 
I hope you don't mind?" 

He hurried away, stopped and 
beaded back to the kitohen. 

"I neiii^r tasted sueh coffee," he 
told Atmt Jenifer. "I'm off to my 
r*om for a Ilttie more study of those 
papers; I ttiink ru take another ctq> 
along with me." And. carrying the 
full cup, he departed. 

She stopped what abe waa doing 
and ■toed with her head tipped to 
•■• aide, llsteainf with aU ber ean. 
Wm had ootieed •aaMthlac: 

he had put two spoons of sugar to 
each cup— this time four. She nod- 
ded compla c ently to herself wljen 
she heard fw^the thirTHmeTKe soft 
closing of doors. 

"Man or woman company, 
which?" she asked herself. "1 won- 
der! And what's he scared of?" 

Only a moment did she loiter in 
the patio garden; its beauty was all 
about her. steeped in the rare sweet- 
ness of the earty morning and she 
was aware of it, yet her troubled 
thoughts kept darting away. Sudden- 
ly she whirled and scurried back 
into the house, running to her aunt 
in the kitchen. 

"Aunt Jenny!" she cried re- 
proachfully. "Why don't you help 
me? I don't know what to do! He 
doesn't want us here — he has as 
good as teld us to go — " 

"Well, we're hot going! Or are 

"Of course not! Not, anyhow, un- 
til we find out about everything." 

"Shush! Here comes Mr. Ranee 

Ranee returned and stood in the 
doorway, looking in upon them 

"I decided to put everything aside 
for a while." he said, his eyes flick- 
ing from the girl's face to her 
aunt's, bade to Ann's and back 
again to Jenifer's, as though be 
were for the first time really taking 

He pnHed a Colt forty-five out of 
its bolster, stepped across the 

stock of them, as though he meas- 
ured them, perhaps to decide which 
of the two did the thinking and de- 
ciding tor both. They saw instantly 
that during these few minutes his 
mood had altered, hardened; the 
line of his lips was straight and 
firm, his eyes were steady and 

"You see," he went on, "this is 
really no place for you people at 
this particular time. I couldn't pre- 
tend to make it pleasant for you— 
under the circumstances. What I 
should like very much would be for 
you to come back out here in a few 
days and be my guests. I'll be com- 
ing into Bald Eagle; you'll be sUy- 
ing there at the hotel for a while? 
I could pick you up and bring you 
out again." 

"My! You do sound hospitable!" 
said Aunt Jenifer. 

He frowned at that "My dear 
lady," he said curUy, "Just how 
hospitable I sound has nothing to 
do with it You were invited, you 
teU me, by old Bill Cole. Well, he's 
dead and gone, and as far as I know 
that's the end of that invitotion. 
Were circumstances different— did I 
not have so much on my hands — " 

"Mr. Waldron!" cried the girl, 
her cheeks flaming. "I hadn't meant 
to say anything like this, but I will 

"Count four and twenty, TatUcor- 
um," said Aunt Jenifer wamingly. 

"I won't! I've counted enough al- 
ready! Mr. Waldron, it goes against 
the grain to come the first time into 
Kir. Early Bill's home and stort 
talking like this, but how can I help 
it? You are distantly related to lilm, 
yes, but— Did you ever hear of bis 
making a will?" 

"A will?" He stared at her so 
sternly then and for such a Img, 
silent time that she felt a shiver 
up ber back. Jle didn't seem exact- 
ly surprised, she thought that bis 
eyes narrowed speculatively, and she 
thought there was a glint of menace 
in them, that was alL "So he did 
make a will, did he? You don't mean 
that you are the lueky one?" 

"Maybe I ami" 

"Maybe?" He gave her a hlgh- 
■houldered ahrui^. "Just wliat does 
that mean? And I didn't even know 
that you and my uncle were old 
friends I Just how long and how well 
did you know him?" 

"I never aaw him in my life and 
yott know I didn'tl But—" 

"This will, now? What are It* 
taiBU, yeung lady? When waa It 
t Aad where !■ tt aawt' 



"It— " But she bit the words back. 
She couldn't teU htm. "It's rl^t 
here to this room! It's locke d up 
fi an^Td"TfOTi box IBTRy^ TStCbiT 
yonderl There are two kejrs to the 
box and I've got only one! For a 
minute I wondered if you had the 
other one!" No. none of that was to 
be spoken without looking ahead. 

He laughed at her. 

"Really, Miss Lee! Now. look 
here; if there's any will we'll talk 
about it when it turns up. As a 
matter of fact, I happen to know 
that there isn't any. Also I know 
that he was going to make one— 
but he didn't get time! He died first! 
Meantime, as next of kin, I am tak- 
ing care of things here. I'm sorry 
that I can't ask you to stay. ReaUy, 
I am sorry!" 

"We're liot going'!" cried the girl 
"I won't budge, for one. He wasn't 
your uncle, anyhow. Just some sort 
of distent cousin or something. And 
he didn'^t like you! Neither do I! I've 
come over a hundred miles and at 
Mr. Early Bill's invitation — and 
here I stay!" 

Ranee's voice sharpened. 

"Finished? Good! Now you listen 
to me—" 

"What goes on here?" asked a 
man's voice, very cool and calm, 
almost at a drawl, yet quietly em- 

It was Cal Roundtree, old Early 
Bill's foreman. Hat in hand he came 
in foom the patio, stepping softly on 
his toes because of his spurs. 

"It's nothing that I can't take care 
of. Roundtree." said Ranee, very 
curt. "Any time that I need you I'll 
let you kn<Jw." 

"ThankingN^ou kindly." said Cal 
Roundtree, and then stood pulling 
one end of his moustache, then the 
other, while his serene eyes regard- 
ed the two women with the frankest 
toterest "Mornin', ladles." he greet- 
ed them. "Me, I'm Roundtree, Cal- 
botm Roundtree, used to be fore- 
man for old man Cole." He ap- 
praised the older woman at his lei- 
sure, no impertinence in his look. 
Just unmasked inquiry, then trans- 
ferred his investigations to the glrL 
His eyes brightened, but then most 
eyes brightened when they met Ann 
Lee's eyes. "It might be," said 
Cal Roundtree, and sounded friend- 
ly, "that you're Miss Ann Lee, come 
up here to see Early BIU?" 

"Why, yes! How did you know?" 

"I had a mite of a telk with him 
a few days ago, shorUy before he 
petered out" said Cal. "He said as 
how he was expectin' comp'ny. It 
would be you and with you, maybe, 
your aunt — Miss Jenifer Edwards, 
ma'am?" he asked in that genUe 
▼oice of his. 

Aunt Jenifer nodded. 

"Pleased to meet you ladies," 
said Cal then, and offered a homy, 
toil-blackened hand. "You're right 
welcome, that's what Early Bill says 
I'm to say to you. and to make 
yourselves to home long as you care 
to terry. He says likewise he's most 
sorry not to be able to be here to 
shake you by the hand, him bein' 
called away to keep a date he 
musto't be late at" He cleared his 
throat and clapped on his hat "1 
happened to see the horse and bug- 
gy. First, I thought maybe the 
horse might like a drink of water 
and a forkful of hay; next, I says to 
myself. That's a .livery stable rig 
from Bald Eagle. Comp'ny! And 
I reckoned it might be you ladies." 

Ranee Waldron heard him out, 
hia gorge rising, his face a hot con- 
gested red when at last he said in a 
repressed voice bespeaking a cold 

"Roundtree, when you're wanted 
here at the house I'll let you know. 
I'm teking care of tilings up here, 

Cal sterted to go. then turned and 
came back. "Either of you ladles 
know how to shoot a gim off?" he 
asked gently. 

"Ann there," said her a^nt, "can 
shoot your eye out at fifty yards!" 

Cal chuckled. "Me. I'U make a 
point not gettin' ornery around you, 
ma'am," he told Ann. He pulled a 
Colt forty-five up out of its holster, 
■tepped across the threshold of the 
kitohen and dropped the gun to the 
table. "Any time you want any- 
thing," he said, "you Just blaze 
away with that; me. I'll be down 
around the corral somewhere, any- 
how not too far off to hear it— Like 
Early Bill said, make yourselves to 
home, ladies," and departed, step- 
ping softly, along with a scowling 
Ranee Waldroa 

"I like him," said Ann Lee when 
the two had gone. "Isn't he—' 

Aunt Jenifer Jerked her head 
about and cupped a hand to her ear. 
"Here comes the rest of the 
world, I reckon," she said content- 
edly. "For so far from everywhere, 
wo sure do see folks! Someone on 
horseback like he was riding a race. 
Now who do you suppose this young 
feller is?" 

H>ey waited In the patio to find 
out. He dismounted out under the 
big oak, around the comer of the 
building Just out of sight Then 
they heard him coming on to the 
hcwae '.anrt then he came to the big 
arch giving upon the patio, and saw 
tbem and lifted bis liat— 

Ann Lee gasped at the sight of 
Hm, startled. The twinkle came 
glinting back into Aunt Jenifer's 

Here came the young man o< tita

Dr. Aarton 

A patient consulted a phyaician 
for a pain In the region of the 
appendix. As the appendix had 
been removed, the physician told 
the patient that the 
pain was likely due to 
adhesions following 
the appendix opera- 
tion. However, to the 
surprise of the physi- 
cian X-rays showed 
a large stone in the 
kidney and that kid- 
ney stone was re- 

It was because the 
pain was in the ap- 
pendix region and 
there was no pain in 
the back or pain following the course 
of the tube carrying urine from kid- 
ney to bladder, that caused the phy- 
sician to mistake kidney stone for 
adhesions. Thanks to the X-rays 
the removal of the kidney stone 
brought complete relief from pain. 
The above, however, is an "excep- 
tional" case as most cases of kid- 
ney stone that cause symptoms can 
be recognized. 

Dr. Charles Pierre-Mathe, San 
Francisco, director of the depart- 
ment of urology, St. Mary's hos- 
pital in "Clinical Medicine" says: 

A sudden, severe pain in the 
small of the back or abdomen which 
radiates "to the groin should be 
looked on with suspicion by the at- 
tending physician. All patients suf- 
fering from kidney stones have red 
Wood cells in the urine which can 
be detected by making a micro- 
scopic examination. I have never 
seen a patient suffering with kidney 
stone whose urine did not show red 
blood cells under the microscope. 
In many patients, crystals, usually 
of the variety found in the stone 
present, are encountered. 

While the family physician with 
the aid of X-rays, microscopic ex- 
amination of urine, use of dyes, can 
locate the position and composition 
of the stone or stones. Dr. Mathe 
advises, and most physicians will 
agree, that a genito-urinary special- 
ist—urologist—should be called into 
consultation in these cases. The 
urologist will carry out a complete 
examination including cystoscopy— 
instrument with lamps and mirror- 
use of a catheter up into ureters 
(the two tubes carrying urine from 
kidneys to bladder), study of the 
amount of urine coming from each 
kidney, and a complete study of the 
urines collected from kidneys and 

After removal of stone or stones, 
they are examined to find composi- 
tion and nature or organisms pres- 
ent so that the proper diet and anti- 
septics can be used to try to prevent 

the formation of more stones.

n^m\ ^VCr # A quiz with answers ofFering ? 

A §^^VMMMmO information on various subjects ? 

Some months ago a moving pie- 
ture showed the inside of a hospital 
in which a patient was undergoing 
diabetic coma. The floor nurse had 
rushed for the intern on duty, and 
on arrival the young physician in' 
jected insulin and ordered salt solu- 
tion, ^hc^ physician in charge of 
the case when told about the pa 
tient's symptoms was furious, and 
t*ld the yoimg intern that the patient 
was BufTering from insulin shocks, 
too much insulin, and the patient's 
life was endangered. 

The young intern suggested that 
they both take a look at the patient 
aiKl he was found to be in a normal 

The point of the story of the pic 
ture does not concern us. How- 
ever, there are now so many dia- 
betics, all of whom know how to 
treat themselves when at home or 
at work, who may be placed in 
strange surroundings when they are 
suffering with diabetic coma (aci- 
dosis) or with Insulin shocks. The 
treatment is very simple in either 
case, but, as the two conditions are 
exactly opposite in character, the 
treatment for each case is different. 

What is diabetic coma and what 
it insulin shopk? How can one tell 
the difference if a known diabetic 
is found unconscious? 

Diabetic coma is a condition 
brought on by overeating — that is, 
the patient himself may cat too 
much food — or the body, due to an 
overactive thyroid gland or infec- 
tion which eats or bums up the food 
too rapidly. Treatment is there- 
fore by insulin injection. 

Insulin shock or reaction is due 
to too much Insulin, to taking too 
little food after Insulin has been 
taken, or taking too much exercise 
and using up the food eaten too 
soon. The treatment is to give some 
starch or sugar at once.

■*■ Broadway's famous betting com- 
missioner, cleared up one of the 
mysteries connected with one of the 
most famous ring 
battles ever fought. 

This was the first 
meeting between 
Jim Jeffries and 
Jim Corbett, won 
by Jeffries with a 
knockout in the 23rd 

In most of the re- 
membered versions 
of that flght, where 
Corbett put on the 

most sensational GrantlandRice 
comeback of all 
time, the average opinion is that 
Corbett had the flght packed away 
by a wide margin until Big Jeff land- 
ed the killing punch. 

Many who saw th« fight had given 
Corbett 20 of the first 22 rounds. 

Doyle's Story 

But Jack Doyle ha<S another story 
to tell. "George Siler refereed this 
fight," Jack said once, "and for a 
long time I tried to get him to tell 
me what his decision would have 
been if the fight had been only a 20- 
round contest. For a long time Siler 
wouldn't say. Then one night he 
told me confidentihlly, asking me 
not to repeat his words, that at 
the end of 20 founds he would 
have given the flght to Jeffries. 

" 'I'U tell yoiit why,' Slier said. 
'Jeffries was the champion. Jeffries 
was the aggressor. And Jeffries 
landed the only damaging punches. 
It was true enough that Corbett land- 
ed many more blows. But none of 
these bothered Jeffries In the slight- 
est. Jeffries only landed a few 
times solidly, bat when he did I 
could see that he had hurt Corbett 
considerably In fact, once or twice 
he had Corbett in serious trouble. 
For that reason at the end of 20 
rounds I would have left the title 
with Jeffries, the defender.' " 

Corbett' s Angle 

Before his death. I talked to Cor- 
bett about this Jeffries flght on many 

Corbett felt dead sure that he had 
lost the championship by being over- 
eonfldent in the 23rd round. 

"I had nailed Jeffries at least 10 
times to one," he said. "I don't 
think anyone coold hurt Jeffries 
when he was In shape, as he was 
then. Ton remember. Fits broke 
both hands on bis Jaw In their second 
flght. Bat I was nalltaig htm aU 
through the flght. I was far hi front 
when he finally caught me coming 
off the ropes." 

I asked Corbett if Jeff had hurt 
him. "Twice," Corbett said. "Both 
body punches, and each time I 
thought he had torn me in two. 
The Jeffries that fought Jack John- 
son wasn't even a ghost of the old 
Jeffries. He was a fat, half-bald 
fellow, far out of shape. But the 
Jeffries 1 met the second time was 
the greatest fighter I ever saw. He 
was not only tough and rugged, 
game and strong, not only a killing 
puncher, but he had also become a 
high-class boxer, which few remem- 
ber. He had to retire because there 
was no one else even close. In his 
prime I don't think that Jack Demp- 
sey or any one else could have hurt 
him. He would have worn down and 
beaten them all."

the Yankee third baseman. 

Income Stabilized 
By Crop Insurance 

Greater Expenditures 
Involved During War 

Planting war crops means added 
expenditures and business risks. 
Farmers must buy new eqiupment 
and use more fertilizers and other 
materials. All are scarce. 

When cotton or wheat crops are In- 
sured up to 50 or 75 per cent of aver- 
age yields, farmers are in a better 
position to plan production of all 
the commodities they produce. With 
some return on wheat or cotton crops 
certain, farmers can afford to make 
more acres available for war pro- 

Thus crop Insurance stabilizes 
income, helps the grower to 
meet his obligations, and helps 
provide for financing crops es- 
sential to winning the war. 

Many wheat and cotton growers 
planted vital war crops on part 
of their land for the first time last 
year— and did it with an assured in- 
come from their regular money 

Through the Federal Crop Insur- 
ance corporation, they were insured 
against fi^lure of their cotton or

Big Ed Walsh was pitching' for 
the White Sox. "Austin was hitthig 
around .209," Jack said. "He hadn't 
gotten a hit for three days. Walsh 
was at his peak. The big fellow 
was mowing them down with his fast 
ball and his spitter. On that day 
I happened to be sitting near a 
bunch of gamblers who found it hard 
to get down a bet. They were 
panning Austin as he came to bat. 
Sittuig near those gamblers there 
was a drunk about half asleep. 
Ho suddenly lurched over and said 
be would like to bet $100 to $500 that 
Austin would get a triple. This 
was too good to be true, especially 
after be had shown his roll. Five 
of the sure-thing boys took him, $500 
to $2,500, and I held the stakes. On 
the first pitch Austin hit one against 
the top of the fence for three bases. 

"The fanny part is, that was the 
last bet they could get out of the 
drunk. He crammed his winning 
$2,500 into his pocket and went back 
to sleep. His last remark was: 'I 
only make one bet a game and then 
I wait for a sore thing that can't 

"I'd say the odds against that bet 
were 1,000 to 1." 


Doyle's prices were closer than 
many others. You'd never tad him 
jayhjg t to 1 that Georgia would 
beat Auburn, Boston College would 
beat Holy Cross, or that the Chicago 
Bears would beat the Hedskins.

from the days of Frank HInkey and 
The Bloody Corner, had seen too 
many npseta, especially tai tradition- 
al gamea. 

The 1942 season was mora than 
ample evidence of the truth of his 

For the first ttane, the cotton crop 
was hisnred bi 1942. Here, bales 
are stored in a field near a cotton 
compress company at Memphis, 

wheat crops from such hazards as 
Insects, drouth, flood, fire, hail, plant 
disease, winter-kill and wind. 

Participation in the wheat insur- 
ance program has increased each 
year for the past three years. In 
1941, 421,133 contracts were written 
with wheat growers. 

The cotton crop is being insured 
again this year. Because the na- 
tion has had cotton surpluses in the 
past, it is not generally recognized 
that crop losses cost growers an 
average of 460 million dollars annu- 
ally. Insurance of the 1942 cotton 
crop on the same basis as the wheat 
crop will mean much to the 13 mil- 
lion who depend directly on cotton. 

Insured growers pay preml- 
nms based on their crop loss ex- 
perience. A commodity note em- 
bodied In the tliree-year contract 
guarantees the premium will be 
paid. Payments may be made 
ia either cash or the commodity. 
If an annual installment Is not 
paid, the equivalent may be de- 
ducted from the indemnity if 
there ia one or from any pay- 
ment dne the farmer for partlcl- 
patiMi in the national farm pro- 
gram or proceeds of any loan 
lie obtains nnder loan pr»> 
grams administered by the sec- 
retary of agricBltnre. 

Indemnities for crop losses are 
paid with a certificate of hidemnity. 
This is convertible into cash or the 
actual commodity, if it is avaUable, 
or used to obtain a commodity loan 
if loans are available. 

As is the case with other phases 
of the farm program, the crop In- 
surance program is administered by 
the state and county AAA commit- 
teemen.^ These committees write ap- 
plications, adjust losses, collect pre- 
miums, measure acreages and han- 
dle establishment of yields and rates 
for individual farms. 

1942 Milk Production 

Keeping farm pastures at a 
high productive rate to meet the 
war-time demands of Uncle 
Sam's 26 million milk cow army 
requires a soil conservation 
program that builds up fertility 
and provides plant foods that 
will assure a good stand of leg- 
lunes and grasses, an agricul- 
tural bulletin points out. In 
such a program, the use of fer^ 
tilizer containing necessary 
phosphorus and potash plays an 
Important part. "In 1042 alone," 
the bulletin says, "milk produc- 
tion totaled 123 billion pounds 
for our fighting forces, our al- 
lies and civilian poptilation." 

Best Milk Bucket 

Where hand-milking is done, • 
hooded dr small top milk bucket is 
preferred. Tfiis type of bucket will 
exclude about 50 per cent of the 
number of bacteria which usually get 
into the milk during the milking 
process. The strahier shouhl be 
seamless and constructed to use 
standard filter discs. Milk cans and 
all other utensils used hi handling 
milk should be of standard construe- 
tloo and frae from open seains, laj

Old Man Coyote waited and waited. 

My, my, how good that Beaver will 
tastel" He licked his chops once 
more, then yawned and closed his 
eyes for a nap. 

Old Man Coyote waited until Jolly, 
round, red Mr. Sun had gone to bed 
behind the Purple Hills, and the 
black shadows had crept out across 
the Green Meadows. Then, keeping 
in the blackest of them, and very 
much like a shadow himself, he 
slipped into the Green Forest. It 
was dark to there and he made 
straight for Paddy's new pond, trot- 
thig ak»ng swiftly without making a 
sound. When he was near the aspen 
trees which he knew Paddy was 
planning to cut he crept forward 
very slowly and carefully. Evcry- 
thtog was still as still could be. 

"Good!" thought Old Man Coyote. 
"t am here first and now all I need 
do is hide and wait for Paddy to 
come ashore." 

So he stretched himself flat behind 
some brush close beside the little 
path Paddy had made up from the 
edge of the water and waited. It 
was very stiU, so still that it seemed 
almost as if he could hear his heart 
beat. He could see the little stars 
twinkling in the sky and their own' 
reflections twinkling back at them' 
from the water of Paddy's pond. OW 
Man Coyote waited and waited. He ' 
ia very patient when there is some- 
thing to gam by it. With such a splen- 
did dinner as Paddy the Beaver 
would make, he felt that be could 
well afford to be patient. So he 
waited and waited and everythtog' 
was as sUU as if no living thing, j 
but the trees were there. Even the ' 
trees seemed to be asleep. 

At last after a long, long time he 
heard Just the fatotest splash. He 
pricked up his ears and peeped out 
on the poad with the hungriest look 
in his cruel yellow eyes. There was 
a little line of silver coming straight 
toward hhn. He knew that it was 
made by Paddy the Beaver swim- 
mhig. Nearer and nearer it drew. 
Old Man Coyote cbuclded way down 
deep inside without making a sound. 
He could see Paddy's head now, 
and Paddy was comhig straight to 
aa if he hadn't a fear to the world. 
Nearer and nearer he came. 

Almost to the edge of the pond 
swam Paddy. Then he stopped. In 
a few minutes he began to swim 
agato. but this time it was back to 
the direction of his bouse, and ha 
seemed to be carrytog somethtog. 
It was one of those UtUe food logs 
he had cut that day and he was 
taking it out to his storehouse. Then 
back he came for another. And so 
he ■ kept on, never once comtog 
ashore. Old Man Coyote waited un- 
til Paddy had carried the last log 
to his storehouse and then with a 
toud wfaack on the water with bis 
broad tail had dived and disap- 
peared to Us house. Then Old Man 
Coyote arose and started elsewhere 
to look for his dtoner, and to lils 
aeart was bitter disappototment

Busy Days Ahead 
for Homemakers. 

Busy days are ahead for Ken- 
tucky farm homemakers, with 
larger gardens and more chickens 
being requested by Uncle Sam. In 
addition, many women will be 
taking the places of men in the 
fields. With these things in mind, 
home economict at the College 
of Agriculture and Home Eco- 
nomics suggest that now is the 
time to get certain jobs out of the 
way. Men folks are less busy now 
and they can help with some of 

Heading the list are repairs and 
improvements to lighten the 
homemaker's work. Windows that 
stick, doors that won't. latch, floor 
boards or linoleum that need re- 
pairing, and drawers that refuse 
to pull out are annoyances that 
can easily ok takan cere of. A 
bigger and important job might 
be the building of convenient 
kitchen cabinets, or the re- 
arrangement of kitchen equip- 
ment to save steps. 

Other things to check off the 
list include the repairing of 
furniture, doing inside paihting 
and putting garden tools in good 
condition. A larger garden space 
must be planned for and plans

Farm Planning For 
Wartime Production 

Producing more food and fiber 
with less labor, will be the pro- 
blem of Boone County farmers 
during the corning year, accordin? 
to Listen Hempfling, Chairman of 
the board of supervisors of tha 
Boone County Soil Conservation 

To accomplish this goal, care- 
ful planning for land use and 
labor management will be re- 
quired. Only the fields l>est suit- 
ed to cultivation and capable of 
producing tli^ greatest returns 
with the least lalxjr, should be 
row-cropped. Land not suitable 
lor cultivation should be left in 
grass or devoted to small grain. 
Fields that are low-cropped 
should be protected from erosion 
by leaving sod strips in the nat- 
ural waterways, and by contour 
planting. In some cases diversion 
ditches or terraces may be need- 
ed to prevent soil washing and the 
loss of muqh needed fertilize:s. 

Information concerning the 
procurement of complete Soil? 
maps, showing soil types and land 
capabilitie.-;, developed fl-om aerial 
photographs, by soil specialists, 
and any assistance desired for 
setting up a better faiTn plan, may 
be secured by contacting Mr. H. 
R. Forkner, County Agent, the 
office of the Boone County Soil 
Conservation District, or any of 
the following supervisors,,,.

Use Old Materials 
to Dress-up Homes. 

Frankfort, Ky., Jan. — Many 
sportsmen are mailing in th^ir 
1942 hunting Ucenses with thair 
report of game killed during the 
year marked up on the back of the 
license, S. A. Wakefield, Director 
of the Division of Game and Fish, 
stated today. 

This is the first time the 
Division has ever undertaTcen to 
make any sort of census of the 
game kill in Kentucky and many 
of the hunters are cooperating 
but there are many who still have 
lot mailed. in their licenses and 
they are urged to do so immedi- 
ately. , >• 

How homemakers in Fulton 
county are using materials on 
hand to make their homes more 
attractive and comfortable at 
little cost was told by Home Agent. 
Catherine Thompson. Eighty-one 
pieces of furniture were re-up- 
holstered, 116 chairs slip-covered, 
130 floor coverings reconditioned 
and 348 articles made from feed 
or flour sacks. Six hundred and 
thirteen women refinished old 
floors, 132 refinished walls and 
247 reconditioned window shades. 
Twenty-one rugs were aLso made. 
Seventy-three women dyed or 
tinted house-hold articles and 142 
added new storage spaces in their 

Says Pure Water 
Makes Hogs Gain. 

Pure and cool drinking water is 
one of the secrets in getting the 
extra poundage of pork needed by 
Uncle Sam in winning the war. So 
declares Hershel Pears of Christ- 
ian county, Kentucky, who sold a 
'itter of nine pigs weighing 2,440 
pounds for $340. 

He fed a balanced ration, in- 
cluding everything recommended 
by County Agent W. D. Talbert. 
Then he saw to it that the pigs 
always had a good supply of pure 
drinking water. Alfalfa pastm-e 
helped reduce the amount of grain 
needed by almost 100 poimds. 
Self-feeding reduced the amount 
of labor required. 

County Agent Talbert says hog 
raising in Christian county jump- 
ed 35 percent last year, although 
the government asked for only 20 
percent' more pork. 

Frankfort, Ky., Jan— All hunt- 
ers and fishermen were urged to- 
day by S. A. Wakefield, Directo'- 
of the Division of Game and Pish. 
not to delay in purchasing their 
1943 hunting and fishing licenses 

In his statement for publication 
Wakefield pointed out that th.- 
Division of Game and Fish faces 
a "serious reduction" in revenue; 
because of the war. and that the 
only funds available for futher- 
ance of the Division's restocking 
program come from hunters aivS 
fishermen. He explained tha; 
purchase of the 1943 license nov, 
with the resultant revenue, woulc^ 
be of great assistance to the Divis 
ion in its conservation program 
for the present year. 

Wakefield stated that Decem- 
ber Is the big revenue month for 
the Division and during that 
month of 1941 the Division re- 
ceived $55,185.60 from sale of 
licenses but this figure droppe 
for the month of December 194' 
down to $36,529.07. This declin 
resulted from so many men goin 
into the armed services; men an 
women taking defense jobs wit" 
less time for sport and recreation 
the rubber shortage and gasoline 
rationing. The decline will con- 
tinue as the war progresses an:" 
the only way revenue can b- 
maintained is through the pur 
chase of licenses by the peop! 
left back home. Even though r 
person might not have ary op- 
portunity to hunt "offish^e or. 
she can purchase a license am 
insure -the continuance of tht. 
Conservation Program tn Ken- 
tucky and know that the jmonc: 
spent for^such a license will hett 
to keep the out-of-doors intac 
for the men when they returr 
from the pursuance of a victor- 
ious war. These men can then get 
ojit their guns and fishing tackle 
to seek outlj,th6 sports they once 
enjoyed in the past.

Quail Prospects For 
1943 Very Bright 

Frankfort, Ky., Jan.— Kentucky 
has more quail left in the wild 
for seed stoik this year than in 
any year in the last 12 or 15, S. 
\. Wakefield, Director of the 
Division of Game and Fish, stated 

With hunting off" about 75 per 
cent: with more birds to start the 
season than in any year in a long 
time; with a lot of poor hunting 
weather between November 24 and 
the close of the season; with the 
biggest beech mast in years and 
the best winter food supply, Ken- 
tucky's quail supply will be gr?at- 
er than ever this fall unless we 
have some natural setbaclts. 

Officials of the Division esti- 
mate that only about 25 per cent 
as many hunters were in the field 
this past season and that they 
hunted only the normal number 
of times, thus reducing the man- 
days in the hunting field by 75- 
per cent. 

Prospects for food for the re- 
mainder of the winter, are good, 
because of a lush .wefed crop and 
the fact that much wheat- and 
grain was left in the fields bjr 
farmers who couldtf t find mas- 
power to harvest it. 

With hunting off so much, the 
revenue for the Division of Game 
and Fish will be away below that 
of past years, and only the favor- 
able natural conditions could have 
saved Kentucky's quail supply. 

Wakefield stated that the Divis- 
ion will probably be able to release 
10,000 birds this spring, as against 
29,230 last spring.

Mud and recurrent tropical rains

While optimistic estimates predicted

Building "Pee" roads In New Guinea is all part of the day's work for 
American army engineers. This particular road under construction near 
Port Moresby, main Allied base in New Guinea, is so steep that the men 
must hold on to ropes to keep from falling backward. The grade drops 
about 65 degrees behind them. 

Spur Meat Production 

Although Food Administrator 
Claude Wickard had been steadily 
urging farmers to increase meat, 
dairy, poultry and egg production to 
meet war demands, the price of corn 
had been rising to a point where 
farmers found it more profitable to 
sell than to use the grain to feed 
cattle, hogs and chickens. 

Moving to stabilize corn prices the 
OPA under instructions frpm Stabi- 
lization Director James F. Byrnes 
imposed a ceiling at January 8th to 
12th prices for 60 days, promising 
permanent ceilings later. Decl|ir- 
ing that these ceiling prices were in 
excess of 100 per cent of parity 
when taking into consideration AAA 
benefit payments, officials said the 
ceilings would establish price rela- 
tionships at which farmers would 
find it profitable to feed, thus pre- 
venting shortages of vitally needed 

As observers had expected, the 
government action produced reper- 
cussions. Livestock feeders were 
pleased, since grain prices were sta- 
bilized; corn growers, whose profit

production was reduced, expressed 

Real but Deferred 

China was too busy fighting Japs 
to take time off to celebrate the 
treaty by which Great Britain and 
the United States abolished extrater- 
ritorial rights. But this action meant 
that once the Japs were ousted, 
China would enjoy real and unquali- 
fied freedom for the first time in a 

The agreements, subject to favor- 
able U. S. senate action will do away 
with political, military, commercial 
and judicial preferences under which 
Britain and America hold jurisdic- 
tion over their own shipping in Chi- 
nese ports, their own special law 
courts in Shanghai, their internation- 
al settlements and their right to 
maintain troops in China. 

Months, and perhaps years re- 
mained to complete the readjust- 
ments, but the march for Chinese 
freedom had begun. 

V. S. Lists Names 

"Reasons of military security" no 
longer made secrecy necessary, so 
the navy announced the names of 
11 warships previously reported as 
lost in three battles of the Solomons. 
The list included the 20,000-ton air- 
craft carrier Hornet and two of the 
nation's fastest and newest light 
cruisers, the Juneau and Atlanta 
and the heavy cruiser Northanrpton. 

Likewise reported as sunk were 
•even destroyers, the Cushing, Pres- 
ton, Benham, Walke, Monssen, Laf- 
fey and Barton. 

Commanders of five of the ships 
were listed as missing, while the 
skippers of the other six, Including 
Rear Adm. Charles P. Mason of 
the Hornet were reported safe. 
Greatest losses were in the epic sea 
battle off Guadalcanal in November 
when all seven destroyers and both 
light cruisers were sunk. In thii 
. battle, 28 Jap ships were destroyed. 


Asks 109 Billions 

Plenty of headaches for Hitler and 
Hirohito were inherent in the epochal 
$109,000,000,000 total war budget for 
the 1943-44 fiscal year which con- 
gress was scanning studiously. 
Largest budget in world history, the 
total would devote $100,000,000,000 to 
war activities, the remainder to do- 
mestic government expense and in- 
terest on the national debt which by 
July, 1944, would reach $210,000,000,- 

Plenty of wrinkles furrowed the 
brows of fiscal experts as they con- 
templated the stupendous budget. 
The mere act of spending such sums 
meant bringing nearer the specter 
of inflation. With more money jin- 
gling in American pockets because 
of war-boosted income and fewer 
goods to buy because of necessary 
war rationing the nation faced a 
supreme economic test. 

Antidote to the inflation threat was 
President Rosevelt's dual-purpose 
recommendation: Syphon off $16,- 
000,000,000 in new taxes or forced 
savings from national Income; add 
this to the present $35,000,000,000 tax 
bill and thus provide $51,000,000,000 
which would pay about half the war 
costs and be a potent checkmate to 
inflation. And to enable wage earn- 
ers to meet the steadily mounting 
bill, moves had been speeded to pro- 
vide pay-as-you-go machinery for 
collecting the new levies. 


Decision at Rostov? ^^ 

Military strategists eyed Rostov, 
key communications city at the 
mouth of the Don river. Here, they 
felt, history would be written in 
weeks to come that would deter- 
mine whether Hitler's Russian ad- 
venture would be a complete rout or 
merely disaster deferred. 

Toward Rostov converged the re- 
treating Nazi armies from the south, 
east and north. Toward Rostov, too, 
moved the advancing Russian ar- 
mies whose successful winter offen- 
sives had badly upset Nazi tactical 
calculations. Here the struggle would 
reach decisive stages. 

Continued gains of the Russians 
in the Caucasus south of Rostov- 
gains which carried them beyond 
the strategic rail city of Georgievsk 
in incredibly short periods— suggest- 
ed to some observers that the Ger- 
man armies were retiring with vir- 
tually no resistance to the Rostov 
area. These observers pohited out 
that at Rostov the Nazis might make 
as bitterly stubborn a resistance ai 
the Reds had at Stalingrad north- 
west on the Volga. 

other forecasts lengthened the rainy 
season until March. 

But a four-way threat to the nar- 
rowing African coastal region still 
in Axis hands was steadily develop- 
ing as Allied aircraft attacked Ger- 
man and Italian bases over a 600- 
mile area. 

From Tunisia a French column 
was reported to have cut across into 
Tripolitania some 300 miles below 
Tripoli. Another French column 
from the Lake Chad area was mov- 
ing north. On the east the British 
eighth army under Gen. Sir Bernard 
Montgomery was pressing the rem- 
nants of Marshal Rommel's forces, 
while in Tunisia the American, Brit- 
ish and French forces were prepar- 
ing for- the time when the weather 
would permit them to take the of- 
Ifensive against Bizerte and Tunis, 
remaining Axis strongholds on the 
African Mediterranean coast. 


Neiv Guinea Struggle 

The Japs were determined to give 
up their remaining foo'tholds in New 
Guinea only at the same stubborn 
cost at which they had yielded the 
Gona-Buna area. It had taken near- 
ly four months to wipe out the Jap 
beachhead in this sector. Still in 
Nipponese hands were Sanananda, 
Lae, Salamaua and Madang. Clos- 
est in was Sanananda and here a 
three - pronged Allied drive had 
hemmed in the last survivors and 
cut off all hope of reinforcement. 

The subjugation of remaining Lae, 
Salamaua and Madang presented 
another story. Their successful as- 
sault meant overcoming the same 
complex problems of supply that 
impeded and delayed the offensive 
against the Japanese at Buna and 
Gona. And until these New Guinea 
positions were wiped out, the United 
Nations would be unable to launch 
any offensive to extend Allied con- 
trol on to New Britain.

"There was much more than meets 
the eye behind the departure of

been able to land additional forces 
to augment their units on Guadal-

A group of presidents of land 
grant colleges, headed by President 
H. C. "Curley" Byrd of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, called on Sec- 
retary of Agriculture Wickard the 
other day. Behind that call was one 
of the most important fights which 
will come before the present con- 

Actually the land grant college 
presidents came to propose an agri- 
cultural program which they think 
will overcome the food shortages. 
But behind this is a plan to put 
control of the farm economy back 
into the hands of the farm bureau 
and the powerful farm lobbies. It 
Is a fight which probably will keep 
up a running fire all during con- 

Background of the fight goes back 
to early In the Roosevelt adminis- 
tration when Henry Wallace, then 
secretary of agriculture, delivered 
a speech in which he criticized his 
own agriculture department for 
helping only the one-third upper- 
crust farmers. The great mass of 
the farmers, he said, the tenants, 
the little farmers, and farm labor, 
got no help from the government. 

Wallace was referring to the fact 
that the American Farm Bureau 
federation, the Grange, the National 
Co-operative Milk Producers, and 
other organizations with powerful 
lobbies in Washington, had always 
Influenced farm policies and domi- 
nated the agriculture department. 
Working hand in glove with them 
have been the land grant colleges, 
the state commissioners of agricul- 
ture, the county agents, and the farm 
extension services. 

These groups controlled agricul- 
ture locally, even when Washington 
was supplying a majority of the

A budget that bites. 

That Is what the United States gov- 
ernment will have if Harold Dewey 
Smith, director of the bureau of the 
budget since April, 1939, when Amer- 
ica started its astronomical spends 
ing, has his way. 

He is not concerned with the size 
of Uncle Sam's bill alone— his job 
is to see that the dollars appropriat- 
ed by the congress go to work, that 
no dollars are appropriated which 
aren't needed to do the job the con- 
gress wants done, that no two dol- 
lars are doing the same job. 

1 thought it would be Interesting 
to take a look at the man who had 
just given his okeh to the biggest 
budget in American history while 
the ink on the report was still damp. 
So I wended my way up the curling 
staircase of the solemn old State De- 
partment building to his office (sec- 
ond-floor front) and was ushered into 
the presence of Mr. Smith, a bland- 
faced gentleman from Kansas with 
a middlewestem accent like the one 
which echoes through my natal com 
fields. The last conversations be- 
tween Mr. Smith and the President 
were taking place just before the 
1943 budget message was complet- 
ed. Mr. Smith, who budgets his own 
time as well as the government's 
money, gave me some fiscal philos- 
ophy between pipe-puffs. 

"A budget should be an adminis- 
trative tool," he told me quietly, 
speaking with a happy combination 
of the poker-faced accountant and 
the old-shoe comer-store crony. 

Budgeting for governments— mu- 
nicipal, state, nation — were the re- 
sult of the efforts of the reformers, 
he explained. But, as usual, when 
the reformers had the laws passed 
they ran off and left them to ad- 
minister themselves. The result was 
that budgeting dried up into book- 
keeping routine. 

"I have a new concept of budget- 
ing," he said with a forthright mod- 
esty that characterizes his remarks 
about his work, "any clerk can add 
up figures." The real Job of the 
budget bureau is to examine the 
jjrograms of the administrative 
agencies for which the cash is to be 
spent, to weigh their significance In 
terms of economic service — not just 
publish a report every year as big 
as a dictionary that serves to con- 
fuse the public. 

The year before Smith came into 
office the bureau of the budget had 
an appropriation of 187 thousand dol- 
lars — 30 thousand of that went Into 
the publication of the bound report. 
In other words, the agency which 
bottlenecks the spending of billions 
had 150 thousand to spend on itself. 

FDR Sets Record 

George Washington had appointed 
the original six members of the Su- 
preme court and filled seven vacan- 
cies during his two terms. Franklin 
D. Roosevelt set a record for the 
number named by one President 
since Washington's time when he 
selected Judge WUey B. RuUedge 
as his eighth appointee to the tribu- 

As the court is now constituted, 
Owen J. Roberts, appointed by Pres- 
ident Hoover, is the only justice on 
the court not named by Roosevelt 


Another factor, however, goes 
much deeper and is one reason be- 
hind reports that Gen. Joseph Stil- 
well may return as head of the 
U. S. military mission to China. 

This, factor is the Chinese argu- 
ment that Japan is a greater ene- 
my than Hitler, coupled with the Separate Entity 
fear that after we have defeated 
Hitler, we will make peace with 
Japan at the expense of China. 

This fear is one which cannot be _ _ 
laughed off easily. In fact. It will congress 
take a lot of persuading to dispel 
Chinese worries. They know that 
a lot of the career gentlemen, pow- 
erful in the state department, have 

The bureau by law Is a separate 
entity which Is under no department. 
The director Is responsible to the 
President The bureau reports to 

operation by obtaining data on how 
current programs are functioning be- 
fore renewing or Increasing appro- 
priations. Thus the budget becomes 
a tool of administration. 


He gave me an example of pne 
problem hfe is working on now. 

"Today there is confusion and con- 
flict between many government de- 
partments and agencies. Examina- 
tion of their methods Is clearing this 
up. There is even conflict and con- 
fusion between agencies and their 
own field forces. This the budget 
bureau with a field force of its own 
can eliminate," Smith believes. 

"When an agency doesn't like the 
way we examine the administration 
of its program and says, *you are 
getting Into operation," I tell them, 
'No, we are not We don't want to 
operate but we do Intend to be. con- 
structively critical.' " 

Another constructive job that 
Smith feels Is Important is reconcili- 
ation between the government agen- 
cy asking congress for money and 
congress trying to keep down costs 
on the one hand, or trying to bring 
new benefits to its constituencies, on 
the other. 

"Congress has a tendency to shy 
away from bureaucracy, the bureau 
heads have a distrust of congress. 
Congress frequently gets facts mixed 
with policy. But facts are facts. 
Our job is to get the facts and to 
present them objectively." 

Politics doesn't worry Smith. He 
served under three governors of 
Michigan, of highly different tem- 
perament party and policies and he 
says th\gt politics entered very little 
Into^the decisions made by any of 
them on the recommendations he 

He said that the same thing ap-

6,000,000 WOMEN: 
In War Work 

More thati 30 per cent of the na- 
tion's war production workers will 
be women by the end of 1943 and 
a proportionately larger nimiber will 
be employed in essential civilian 
trades and services, it was predict- 
ed by Paul V. McNutt chairman of 
the War Manpower commission. 

Mr. McNutt estimated th^t 4,000,- 
000 of the present 17,000,000 war 
workers arc women and forecast 
8,000,000 by the end of 1943. 

her place in the sun. They know 
that some of the state department 
clique tacitly favored Japanese oc- 
cupation of Manchuria, while the 
British almost openly supported it. 
The realistic Chinese, therefore, 
argue that after Hitler is defeated 
Japan is more than likely to pro- 
pose a compromise (as she got Ted- 
dy Roosevelt to do to end the Russo- 
Japanese war) whereby Japan gets 
a slice of China and the world gets 
a rest from war. 

The realistic Chinese also know 
that they could make peace with 
Japan tomorrow by giving her sev- 
eral treaty ports and a slice of the 
North. In fact, the Japs probably 
would like nothing better than a 
peace which would permit them to 
withdraw half a million men from 
China and use them against us in 
the Pacific. 

Finally Chiang Kai-shek has his 
own troubles with his generals, 
many of them pliable to Jap wiles, 
especially "silver bullets," which 
the Japs claim is the easiest way to 
win wars. 

So Chiang needs something to 
show to keep his generals in line- 
cither more arms, which he is not 
getting; or a trea^ from the United 
SUtes pledging wc will fight to the 
end until China is absolutely free. 

Instead of such a pledge, Chiang 
has a military mission headed by a 
man whom the Chinese don't like- 
General StilwelL Joe StUwell comes 
from the old school which didn't par- 
ticularly Ilka the Chinese, and the 
Chinese make no bones about the 
fact that they don't like him. 

He insists on doinf all his busi- 
ness direct with the generalissimo, 
taliung to him only. 

As a result, Willkle was given ■ 
message to take back to Roosevelt 
to get General StUwell outjyC the 
pictun. ^' 

tive criticism has become a powerful 
element in the writing of laws of the 
land. Before a bill Is passed it goes 
under the microscope of the budg- 
eteers. Smith, it Is generaUy admit- 
ted, has as much Influence on the 
President, when it comes to the for- 
mation of policy which is frozen Into 
law, as any man in Washington. He 
reviews every bill which is passed 
and advises whether the President 
should sign it or veto it. 

But the real, constructive value of 
the bureau of the budget which has 
been given a dynamic force under 
Smith's direction, is the advice and 
counsel it can render in advance of 
the tiassage of legislation. 

Proponents of a bill ask the budget 
bureau's advice before they present 
their testimony to the committees 
which pass life or death sentences 
on a measure. And it is Smith's 
idea to make this an Increasingly 
positive function; to compile fre- 
quent important technical reports on 
proposed programs for the guidance 
of tiie committees. 

The budget bureau has always con- 
sulted with the departments and 
agencies and the common practice 
of a department head is to ask for 
more than he expects In the hope he 
won't get much less than be wants. 
Smith's idea is to provide active co-

Army Dogs Serve as Messengers to Men at Front 


Dr. Barton 

Carrying pigeons on their sides at the front line is a duty that army dogs often perform. In picture at 
left, dogs are shown at a simulated front line position, while the men prepare to release the pigeons to the 
rear for more aid for the medical corps to help with the wounded. A soldier writes the message. Right: 
Bere Rin Tin Tin III Illustrates how a dog would bring a message from a command post at the rear of the de- 
tachment holding the front lines. These dogs would prove of inestimable value to detachments and other 
units during actual warfare.

Private IValter Hancock of St. Louis submitted the winning design for 
the npw air medal. Private Hancock entered the competition while be 
was yet a civilian. Word that his design won the competition came at 
the end of a day of KP at Camp Livingston, La. Picture shows Hancock,

Capt. James W. Snyder, U. S.

civilian life was a historian, is shown

Riding High 

](fatives, who know New Guinea territory even better than the Jungle- 
hardened Anssles and Americans, carry the wounded past a machine gun 
vitiC. Transporting the Injured from the line of battle is merely one im- 
portant function of these dark-skinned men and boys who act as porters, 
guides and carpenters. ^. 

One pf the good things that comes 
from the war Is the interest in first 
aid. Everywhere, even in small vil- 
lages, first aid classes are being 
formed and the 
members of the 
class learn the cor- 
rect manner of han- 
dling the Injured. 

So widespread is 
the interest in first 
aid that our humor- 
ists and cartoonists 
are using it in their 
strips or columns. I 
have spoken before 
of one class in which 
the young man be- 
ing treated for a 
"supposed" broken leg was allowed 
to fall oft the table and really did 
break his leg. In putting him into 
the ambulance he was not pushed 
far enough forward and the door 
being forcibly closed struck bis head 
and caused concussion. The humor- 
ous comment was that with a few 
more lessons this class could be sent 
■gainst the enemy. 

A daily cartoon about youngsters 
shows the little heroine Uying first 
aid methods on youngsters whom her 
boy friend had damaged in order to 
give her the necessary cases in 
which to practice. 

As a matter of fact, the first les- 
ion taught by the instructor to a 
first aid class is that they are not 
learning to be doctors but to do the 
right thing until the doctor arrives, 
thereby preventing complications 
and saving life. Many physicians, 
including myself, can testify to the 
skill and Judgment of the members 
of these classes. I have taught 
first aid classes and have worked 
with members of the Red Cross and 
St. John's Ambulance corps. 

My point in writing about first aid 
Is to emphasize the importance of 
the first lesson given by the first aid 
instructors which is that what not 
to do is as important as what to do. 
Dr. H. E. McDermott, editor of the 
Canadian Medical Journal, says: 
"There is great value in a wide- 
spread knowledge of first aid meth- 
ods and there can be nothing but 
encouragement of the movement. At 
the same time experience shows 
that enthusiasm to learn and prac- 
tice first aid must be kept within 
proper bounds. The first aider must 
realize his limits and never exceed 
them. That is the first and great 
commandment in his work." 

"First aid is largely a combina- 
tion of physiology and common

Calmness of Mind 
Great Aid in Colitis 

When the four letters "itis" are 
used, it means "inflammation of." 
Thus we have appendicitis, pleuri. 
tis, sinusitis, mastoiditis, all mean- 
ing inflammation of these organs. 
Following this rule colitis means in- 
flammation of the colon, and there 
are certain cases where the colon 
is inflamed and are rightly called 
colitis. The colon is the large in- 
testine which holds the wattes. 

However, what is often called 
colitis is a spasm of the colon, which 
is called spastic colitis, but there is 
no real inflammation of the colon 

Functional not organic, conditions 
of the colon are outlined by Dr. J. 
H. Geddes, London, Ontario, in the 
Canadian Medical Association Jour- 
nal. These are colitis, spastic coli- 
tis, mucous colitis, spastic constipa- 
tion, tonic hardening of the colon, 
irritable colon, and having the mind 
always on the colon — colon con 

Dr. Geddes believes that irritable 
colon and being always conscious of 
the colon really represent all the 
above conditions — disturbances in 
the nervous, muscular and gland 
control of the colon, or large intes- 
tine. As in all functional distiurb- 
ances or diseases, the fault does not 
lie in the colon itself, but in the 
unstable nervous condition of the 

Other general types of colitis have 
a combination of symptoms, the 
commonest being gas and bloating, 
and sometimes loss of appetite. In- 
testinal parasites — worms — have 
symptoms resembling colltii. 

Of course, in all cases where there 
is gas, bloating, bowel spasm, diar- 
rhea and constipation, the use of the 
X-rays will greatly help in finding 
the cause, and it should be used. 
Naturally in times of strain and 
stress as at present, the number of 
cases of colitis greatly increases. 

Successful treatment consists in 
trying to acquire calmness of mind 
even when the problem is very 
great, and also to use soft nonirri- 
tant foods.

They Stop the Flow of Electricity 
When Something Is Wrong 

The fuse is a safety valve for the 
electric system. If the correct size is 
used, a thin strip of soft metal under 
the glass will melt or "blow" when- 
ever a short circuit or overload causes ' 
more iclectricity to flow through the 
wires than they can safely carry. The 
melted fuse link stops the flow of 
current before damage to the wiring 
in the walls can result. 

' It's Easy to Replace Fuses 

If you do not know how to replace 
a "blown" fuse, call us and we'll 
have a serviceman show you next 

time he's in your vicinity.* It's al- 
most as simple as replacing a light 
bulb and not only eliminates delay 
in restoring service, but also saves a 
trip for a service truck, thus conserv- 
ing vital rubber. 

Never Use Substitutes 

Always keep a few spare fuses of 
correct size on hand, so you'll have 
them when needed. Never use pen- 
nies or other makeshift substitutes. 
They will not protect you and may 
cause a fire. 

How to Locate a "Blown" Fuse 

Notice tiiin metal strip under glass. If this strip 
or linlc has melted and shows a gap, or if glass 
is scorched and you cannot see linlc, fuse has 
blown and should be replaced with new. fuse 
of correct size, usually 15 amperes for branch 
circuits. (Illustration shows type most com- 
monly used. If your fuses are different, ask for 
specific instructions.)

Words will not express the high 
esteem we have for Mr. Scott 
Chambers. He wis as fine as the 
finest, I never knew a man could 
pessesr JTReaiTaslSIg as Mr. Scott 
Chambers, so full of love and 
sympathy. He rendered his best 
service to all. Cre^ or color did 
not matter to him. He saw his 
fellow man as a human being and 
treated all as such. That shows he 
had the masters training. I can 
not put into words the love we 
feel for Mr. Chambers. Our 
comunity will miss him as a loyal 
friend. He set a beautiful shining 
example the way he rendered 
service to us endeared him to us 
more than words can tell. 

He lived the life the master 
wants us to live. He served the 
master serving humanity, some 
choose their life work but have 
nothing to go with it. 

It seems as If Mr. Chambers 
could not have chosen any work 
that would have fitted him better, 
he had the right qualifications 
and a pleasing personality that 
blended with his profession. 

There are other white friends 
that have been nice to us from 

time to time, we want you to 
know every deed has been appre- 
ciated. We thank you, may God 
bless you.

YES, Bill has been guarding that crossing for a 
good many years now . . . and never before 
has he seen the likes of the transportation job the 
Southern Railway is doing today. 

You see, when Amei ica declared war, the men and 
women of the South ,-n knew that they would be up 
against the biggest, most important job they had ever 

They know now that millions of lighting men are 
counting on them to keep enormous quantities of 
war goods rolling. 

They know now that Uncle Sam is d°n"ndine on

They know now that gas-and-tire-rationed civil-

travel and the transportation of civilian necessities. 

It's a big, tough job... chock-full of headaches and 
heartaches. But the Southern's men and women are 
getting it done! 

That's why full-packed trains are rumbling hy 
Bill's post at the crossing in an endless proce-ssion

THE STORT SO FAR: Ann Lee and 

Cole Codjr, beneBciarlei under two Identi- 
cal Willi made by Early BlU Cole, ar- 
_llxe4 In Uie tovn_(il3ald Eafl* by «(•«• 

•each only to learn of BUI Cole'i death 
• tew daya previously. Ann, accompanied 
by Aunt Jenifer, went out to the Ranch 
the loUowInf day and was greeted by 
Ranee Waldron posing as Old Bill's neph> 
-•w. Afterward, Ranee made It evident 
they were not welcome at the Ranch. And 
wliH« Ann Lee was maktnc It Jnst' a* 
Flaln |be bad no Intention of leavlnf, 
Cal Ronndtree, Old Early Bill's foreman, 
eame upon the scene. Shortly they beard 
someone else arriving, Ann Lee gasped 
when she saw It was Cole Cody. 
Now continue with the story. 


If' Ann Lee had not been luch a 
precipitate, hair-trigger sort of 
creature, a lovely little package of 
all torts of unmanageable impulses, 
she must have marked in Cole Co- 
dy's startled expression that he was 
no whit less amazed to see her here 
than she was to see him. But she 
happened to be a girl who did her 
major thinking, when thinking 
seemed Indicated, after the act in- 
stead of before. "WeUl" said Uttie 
Miss Ann Lee. I'Of all things 1 If 
yeu think for one single minute, Mr. 
* Cedy, that either my aunt or myself 
has anything whatever to say to 
you, you are sadly mistaken. Come, 
Auntie, let's go in the house. It's 
nicer in there." 

"Good morning, Mr. Cody," 'said 
Aunt Jenifer, smiling frlendliwise. 
"Lovely morning, ain't it?" 

"You're right!" he told her enthu- 
siastically. "Take this morning Just 
^ as it is, you couldn't beat it with a 

ten foot pole. The sun's shining, 
netice? And the sky is as blue as 
anything. That's the way It ought 
to be. The air, now, It's all shot 
full of sunshine, and you can smell 
the pines and the green grass; and 
you just get a whiff of wood smoke 
out of the chimneys, dropping down 
lazy-like because on a still morning 
like this, vrith no wind blowing — " 
"Coming, Aunt Jenifer?" asked a 
cool, distant-seeming Ann Lee. 

Whether Aunt Jenifer exactly 
tipped Mr. Cody a sly wink, or 
whether perhaps she merely squint- 
ed an eye against the siin, looking 
his way, is a question. Not much 
of a question, perhaps, yet there is 
room for argument. 

She said meekly to her niece with- 
out in the least looking meek, "Com- 
ing, my pet," and followed along 
to the door which Ann was holding 

"Just a minute therel" Cody 
called after them. "Me, too, I'm 
coming In!" 

"I don't think you have any busi- 
ness here, Mr. Cody," Ann said 
crisply. "You are not invited and 
you are not coming in. And I never 
want to see you again. Do you un- 
derstand? Or must I say it again?" 
"Can you get it through your 
head," said a very rude William 
Cole Cody, "that you and I, far 
' apart as the poles In everything 

else, agree right up to the hilt on 
one thing? That we never want to 
see each other any more than we 
f have to, and let's hope that today 

wipes the slate clean. Just the same 
I am coming in, and I am going to 
stay for a speU, and — " 
"Like fun you are!" Ann cried 
^ angrily. And, stepping swiftly back- 

ward, she slammed the door in bis 

He set his hand to the latch just 
In time to hear her drop the oaken 
bar into place. He swore gently 
under his breath, scratched bis 
head. Jerked his hat forward and 
strode purposefully along the corri- 
dor edging the patio, hunting for 
another door. He found it just in 
time to have it slammed, good and 
hard. He hastened his step and 
heard light steps running. So he, 
too, ran. 
The next door was already fas- 
^ tened. He wasted no time at all 

on it — those doors at the Hacienda 
Estrada, made long and long ago 
of good, honest oak two Inches thick, 
asked for a batterhig ram when 
hospitality was not at home— but 
spun on his heel and dashed for the 
kitchen end of the house. Little 
Ann Lee, hearing him, ran, too, as 
swift and agUe as anyone of the 
three little pigs who were not wish- 
ful for a call from the wolf, but ttie 
long-legged Cody was ahead of her 
by several safe yards. 

He burst into the kitchen and halt- 
ed there, briefly triumphant, while 
he could hear the staccato tapping 
of her racing feet. 
They looked at each other across 
• the room. Cody shoved his hat back, 
set his hands on his hips, lifted his 
chin at her and gave her a look as 
good as a slap. She came to a 
dead halt. 

"You get out!" she cried in an 
anger that made her beautiful for 
any man, not likewise angry, to 
gaze upon. 

"Some other time," said Cody, 
very brittle with her. 

Behind Ann Lee, Aunt Jenifer ap- 

pelted. She wasn't laughing; She 

„, q* wasn't even exactly smUing. Yet si 

- matf^some degrees less than bUnd 

could have told that she was having 

the time of her life. 

Ann Lee, close to her wits' end, 
remembered the recent visit of the 
amiable Mr. Calhoun Roundtree, re- 
membered in a flash the gift he had 
made her. There on the kitchen 
table, in the middle of the room, 
between here and the detestable Mr. 
Oodr. was Qal's Colt .45PWbat nwm 

could any beleaguered girl ask? 

She fairly leaped upon it She 
snatched the weapon up and, her 
eyes very bright along its barrel, 
looked at Cole Cody disquietingly, 

"Get out!" she said again. "'"I 
mean It. You get out or I'll kill 

"Better look out. Mister," said 
Aimt Jenifer's gentle voice. "Our 
little vixen can shoot like a sharp- 
shooter—and she's Just in the mood. 
Better do the way she says and 
come back some other time." 

Cody began to laugh and took a 
forward step, meaning to force the 
giin down, to take it away from her, 
then to have a sensible word vyith 
the very obviously sensible Miss 
Jenifer Edwards. 

Ann Lee, desperate now, shrilled 
another word or two of defiance: 

"Stop! I tell you—" 

In the quiet kitchen the explosion 
as the gim went off was as good as 
a cannon shot. Down at the corrads 
Cal Roundtree heard it, quite as he 
had said he would. 

A queer, rigid look stamped itself 
on Cole Cody's face. He stood his 
ground a minute, staring incredti- 
lously. He opened his lips to speak, 
then closed them again without a 
word. After all, what was there to 
say? The matter required a modi- 
cimi of thought 

"That's Just to show you!" the 
girl told him, mocking him with 
voice and eyes and her whole atti- 
tude. "Next time I'll kill you!" 

He thought that over, too. 

"There won't be any next time," 
be managed at last His eyes fas- 
cinated her; they seemed to catch 
all the light there was in the room, 
to focus it and draw it down to a 
fine point, to drive it back at her in 

"Get out!" she said again. "I 
mean it. You get out or I'll kill yon." 

a long, poison-tipped, altogether 
venomous lance. "You see, it's like 

Then, when she began to feel en- 
tirely mistress of the situation, 
thinking that he meant to draw back 
and go his way, he leaped forward, 
taking half the room in one panther- 
ine bound, and slapped her gun down 
Just as It roared for the second time. 
His grasp wrapped about her wrist, 
tensing unmercifully, twisting her 
arm so that she screamed out in 
pain, and the gun dropped to the 
floor. He let her go, stooped and 
caught the weapon up and hurled it 
far out through the open door be- 
hind him. Then he set both his hard 
hands on her shoulders, jerking her 
toward him, shaking her back and 
forth 80 that her hair tumbled down 
and whipped lashingly across her 
reddening cheeks. . 

"You little Uger pup!" he caUed 

There was a convenient chair. He 
dropped down into it and pulled her 
down across his knees; he yanked 
up her flounces and lifted his hand — 
high! She kicked wildly, her legs 
threshing like some fantastic sort 
of windmill as, on fire with this in- 
dignity, she bit and scratched and 
screamed at him. His hand, lifted 
high, came down with a smack 
which made even a paralyzed Aunt 
Jenifer shudder; that hand of his 
rose and fell to such effect that in 
a couple of minutes little Miss Ann 
Lee received all the thorough spank- 
ings she had missed — and needed — 
these many years. 

It was upon such an arresting 
scene that Cal Roundtree, coming at 
a dead run, burst, gun in hand. Cole 
Cody, hand lifted, gazed at him 
frowningly, little liking the inter- 
ruption just now when things were 
quite at their best To make mat- 
ters even less to his taste, there 
wa$ another nian. looking in over 
Xia^JRoundtree'S ' shoulder. Young 
Cody brought US' hand down for the 
final smack. 

"Hey, you!" roarfd Cal. "What 
In the— " 

Promptly Cole Cody gave over 
what was occupying him and stood 
up, letting Ann Lee slide off his 
knees and sprawl on the floor. He 
stepped toward the newcomers. 

"Why, dam youl" Cal Roundtraa 

Again Cole Cody emulated a 
springing cat, and his fist came up 
4n a long^xwing, taIuag^al~Reund> 
tree neatly and forcefully upon the 
I pni^t of the ehin, and such was the 
effect of the blow that Cal was lifted 
from his feet and flung backward, 
landing in the yard from which he 
had Just come, flat on his back. And 
still a stormy Cole Cody stormed 
along, giving next his full attention, 
asking no questions, to Cal's com- 
panion. Ranee Waldron. Ranee, too. 
went for his gun, 'and small good it 
did him, for in his case as in Cal's 
Cody's hand seemed to be quicker 
than the eye. At any rate the same 
fist, looking now to Ann Lee like a 
rock bouhd to the end of a war 
club, accomplished for Ranee Wal- 
dron what it had already done for 
Cal Roundtree, with but a slight va- 
riation: the bronze knuckles landed 
with a sound compounded of thud- 
ding and squishing effects upon 
Ranee's nose, and blood . spouted, 
and Ranee tottered backwatd,| 
tripped over Cal's earthbound body, 
and went down Ignominiously. 

But Cody's gun was in his hand, 
Its blunt, ugly nose turned Cal's 

"Better drop it, feller," said Cole 
Cody, sounding listless and not 
greatly concerned. He sat down as 
though making himself thoroughly at 
home. "Might blister your fingers." 
"Look here, you," said Cal Round- 
tree, his hand hanging down, the 
muzzle of his gun brushing his boot 
top. "Seems as though—" 

He stopped short, biting bis words 
off clean. He saw that the man 
lounging in the kitchen chair had 
turned white under his heavy tan, 
and he saw something else. He saw 
a tiny red pool on the floor close 
to one of the chair legs, and noticed 
the spaced drops falling down into 

Cal said, "I'm putting my gun 
away, stranger; all right?" and bol- 
stered it with Cody watching him 

Then he stepped up close to Cody 
and stood looking down at him. 
"Hurt bad?" he asked. 
"No," said Cody. 
Cal stooped down and took his gun 
away from him. 

Ann Lee, her eyes enormous, hot 
spots of red on her burning cheeks, 
was on her feet again and staring 
at the man who had Just used her 
so, and she, too, at last saw the 
whiteness through his bronze, and 
the slowly dripping blood into the 
tiny glistening pool. 

"I shot him and I am glad!" she 

Aimt Jenifer came to Cal Round- 
tree's side, bending over the man in 
the chair. 

"Children shouldn't be allowed to 
play with shooting irons," said Aunt 
Jenifer mildly. "They're always 
getting hurt If you boys, Mr. 
Roundtree, will get Mr. Bill Cole 
Cody to a bed, and if you'll bring 
me some boiled water and a clean 
sheet or pillow case, we'll try to 
mend him up. I don't think—" 

"Mr. Who?" demanded Cal 
Roundtree. "Who'd you say he is?" 
"He calls himself Cody, WlUiam 
Cole Cody, and—" 

Roundtree ran his fingers through 
his hair, then along the rim of an 
aching Jaw. He frowned down at 
young Cody. "You Cole Cody?" he 

Cole Cody, a trifle dizzy and slck- 
ish, demanded, 

"Might I ask if it's any business 
of yours? I'm not asking your pedi- 
gree, am I? Suppose you leave me 

"You're a nice kid, like a hornet," 
Cal snorted. "But I got to know. 
Unless you're ashamed of yourself, 
and I reckon you ought to be on gen- 
eral principles,you tell me whether 
you're William Cole Cody or not!" 
Cody regarded him speculatively. 
Not a bad sort, it struck him, this 
nosy IndividuaL Further, he was 
in no mood for a lot of empty jab- 
ber. Nor had he any reason to deny 
himsell So he said curtly, 

"Me, I'm Cole Cody. William Cole 
Cody. Just Cody for short Now 
what? Want to do anything about 

Cal Roundtree stood rubbing his 
bruised jaw. 

"Yes. I do," he said, having duly 
meditated. "Two things. I want to 
get yotu: shirt off, see how bad you're 
hurt and mend yiChi up again. That's 
one thing. The other is, I want to 
make you welcome to the King Cole 
Ranch. Old Early Bill told me to 
watch out for you. to treat you like 
home folks. That's two things. May- 
be later on we can make it three: 
when you're all well again, I'd lU(e 
powerful well to take you out be- 
hind the bam and beat you clean to 
He stuck his hand out 
"Shake, Cody." he said. "Old 
Early Bill says so. You're wel- 
come; like the old Spanish used to 
say, the place is yours." 

Cody looked up at him and a slow 
smile twitched at his lips and 
wanned' his eyes, and his hand 
went out to find-^ and clasp Cal 
Roundtree's. And Ann Lee stared 
at them with all her might As, in- 
deed, did Ranee Waldron. 

So Cal got young Cody as far 
along as a chair in the living room— 
the same old chair in which Early 
Bill .had sat just before he lunged 
up, to die standing up I— and yanked 
up his shirt tail and sought his

Lesson for January 24

Council of Religious Education; used by 


LESSON TEXT-John 8:2-17. 
GOLDEN TEXT— WUt thou be made 
whole?— John S:e. 

Hope of the hopeless, help of the 
helpless — who would that be, . but 
Jtesus? Coming to Jerusalem for the 
feast He did not seek out the homes 
of the mighty, the places of learn- 
ing and culture, but betook Himself 
to the Pool of Bethesda, where there 
"lay a multitude of them that were 
sick, blind, halt withered." Why did 
He go to such a place? Because He 
always had compassion upon those 
in need. 

In this multitude He saw at once 
the neediest hian of all— one without 
friends or loved ones to care for 
him, despondent and disheartened. 
What happened that day may well 
encourage the heart of every sad, 
lonely, and discouraged one. 

We see three things here. 

I. Hopeless Infirmity (w. 1-7). 

Row weak and helpless is humani- 
ty. Oh, yes, we seem to be strong, 
capable, fearless, but only until we 
meet some great elemental prob- 
lem. Then we see that we are in- 
deed a great multitude of impotent 
folk. The gently falling snow 
stopped the undefeated Napoleon. 
The silent fog can paralyze a na- 
tion. Sickness, death— who can stay 
I their hand? We need the steady and 
I powerful grip of God upon our lives 
I if we are to go through such ex- 
Iperlences. Not only was this man 
ill and weak, but his long years of 
I suffering had made him so accus- 
tomed to weakness that he had 
reached a state of despair. 

Such an attitude invites defeat. It 
may be the only recourse of the 
man of the world, but with Jesus 
standing by to help, there is good 
reason for assurance of faith in the 
darkest hour. 

In the face of his need — yes, even 
in the light of Jesus' provision for 
that need — the leaders of the Jews 
could only criticize. 

U. Heartless Religion (w. 10-13, 

Jesus had done for the man what 
the Jews had not been able to do; in 
fact, one wonders whether they had 
so much as lifted a finger to help 
this poor sufferer. But now that he 
was able to walk, they were greatly 
concerned about the violation of 
their Sabbath day restriction against 
any work. 

Instead of shouting for joy that 
this man was able to carry not only 
himself but his bed, they became 
zealous about maintaining the let- 
ter of their law. 

Are there not those in our day 
who would be greatly disturbed if 
the sisatlilike quiet and dignity of 
their church services were to be 
broken by the cry of a new born 
babe in Christ? Would a revival be 
welcomed in the great churches of 
America which have lost the savor 
of Christ and the power of the gos- 
pel? We think not 

The man who had been healed an- 
swered well (v. U). He did not 
know who Jesus was, but he knew 
that if He had authority to heal, He 
also had the right to tell him to 
carry his bed. When we meet Jesus 
we will be healed of our hifirmities 
and, like this man. be delivered 
from the fear of cold ecclesiasti- 

But let us turn to the heart of 
our lesson, which is the act of Jesus 
in giving him 

HI. Healing of Body and Soul (w. 
8. 9, 14). 

The body of this man was miracu- 
lously healed. There was no par- 
tial Improvement, no long drawn 
out convalescence and regaining of 
strength. In fact, he was told to do 
something which called for the full 
vigor of a healthy body, to show 
that he was healed. 

Even so when we are healed from 
sin it is not to a half-dead existence, 
but to the full vigor of spiritual life. 
We are to arise and walk in the 
power and grace which Christ has 
brought into our lives. 

Note that the miracle performed 
here was for the glory of God. The 
miracles of God are not mere mar- 
vels or wonders. They are not for 
the advancement of the cause of any 
man or for personal glory. They 
are the mighty signs of an Onmlpo- 
tent God wrought for the good of 
men, for their spiritual enlighten- 
ment, and as a testimony to the 
one true God. 

So in this case Jesus found the 
man hi the temple to admonish him 
to continue steadfast to the spiritual 
liberty which had come to him "lest 
a worse thing befall" him. 

Evidently this man's InflAilty had 
been caused by sin, and even th9ugh 
he had suffered those 38 long years 
the tendency toward sin was still 
alive to his heart. Sto dies hard. 
How often have we not seen those 
who have cried to God out of their 
affliction, promistog all sorts of spir- 
itual changes If God will deliver 
them. When He does, they go right 
back to their old ways. The one 
who does that may well be looktog 
for the "worse thing" irtiich wUI 
surely befall him.

Lynn Says: 

Your Diet I.Q.: If you're defi- 
cient to some vital vitamins and 
mtoerals you may have certain 
physical todications of this lack. 
Check the following todications: 

Frequent ear and sinus trou- 
bles, nose, throat and stous to- 
fections? Perhaps you're mlsstog 
vltamto A— found in meat, eggs, 
milk, green vegetables, yeUow- 
colored fruits and vegetables. 

Is the appetite poor and are 
you nervous and tired? You may 
be skipptog over lightly vitamm 
Bl — found in whole gram cereals, 
meats and fish, liver and kidneys. 

Can't recover quickly from a 
cold, from that run-down feeltog, 
or havtag bleeding gums and a 
saUow, muddy, complexion? Bet- 
ter get more \mamm C — ^from or- 
anges, grapefruit, green leaves,

Anemia? Feel tired and list- 
less? You may need iron — mo- 
lasses, liver, beans, peas, whole 
grain cereals, egg yolks and leafy 
green vegetables. 

Poor teeth, brittle bones, ex- 
cessive bleeding when accidents 
occur, or weakened heart and

College Football and 1943 

What will happen to the colleges — 
and college football this year? 

In the first place, this Is a matter 
entirely up to the war department. 
In the second place, it is also a 
matter that interests many millions. 

Here is a tip from inside sources 
in the war department— 

"In 1943 we will take over 200 or 
maybe 300 colleges and universities. 
At least 300,000 of 
th^ 18 and i9-year- 
old boys will be as- 
signed to this class. 
They will be draft- 
ed, but the pick of 
the draft will be 
given over to ROTC 
training. Jhcfse men 
will be trained for 
officers, especially 
In the flying corps, 
where we are look- 
ing for at least 70,- 
000 additional fliers. 
This is a different sort of war. 

"The only colleges and universi- 
ties that can get by are those picked 
for war training. After 1942, the 
war department will have lull 
charge, not college presidents, who 
are in complete accord with the 
war department program." 

The New Program 

It Is my belief that so far as 1943 
is concerned, football should be giv- 
en first place in any physical train- 

Football isn't war— but it is the 
closest thing we have to war. 

Football Is the best training for 
war. As references I'll give you 
Gen. Douglas MacArthur and Capt. 
Mike Moran of the good ship Boise, 
who sank six Jap warships in 27 
minutes. ' 

Both are staunch believers in foot- 
ball values for war. 

But what sort of college football 
program will we have for 1943? 

Many in the war department want 
only an intramural program. In 
this respect they are 100 per cent 

On both the physical training and 
the morale sides, football — or any 
other sport— needs outside competi- 

Men in the service know this much 
better than head men in Washing- 

1^ These servicemen want to beat 
Somebody else— not themselves. 

There are too many in Washing- 
ton who don't happen to understand 
this psychological angle— which is 
an important one. 

There is no way they can get 
close enough to millions of service- 
men, who know what they want. 

The Needed Program 

Granting the fact that football is 
a badly needed ingredient in our na- 
tional training program— which no 
sane person denies— there should be 
outside competition at close travel- 
ing range. 

There should be no faraway inter- 
sectional games. But there are any 
number of teams who are fairly 
close neighbors, where there is a 
homespun rivalry, where traveling 
distances are short. 

The East' can play against the 
East— the South against the South— 
the Midwest against the Midwest 
and the Southwest— the Far West 
only against the Far West. 

Until the war is over, national 
championships are entirely 'out of 
order. Long trips are out of order. 
Intersectional games are out of or- 

Very few people expect sports as 
usual. They know that far-reaching 
changes are Inevitable. 

But It so happens this country 
has teams in every section that can 
play among themselves on a high 
basis of skill, with a neighborhood 
rivalry that is far more interesting 
than any outside challenge. 

For example — Harvard, Yale' and 
Princeton— Georgia, Georgia Tech, 
Alabama and Auburn— Boston Col- 
lege and Holy Cross— Army and 
Navy— Southern Cal. and UCLA- 
Stanford and California— the Texas 
teams— on and on. 

With the war department taking 
over so many colleges and universi- 
ties, their major mistake would be 
to abolish football. 

Their second major mistake would 
be to abolish all outside competition. 
They should let these colleges car- 
ry on with what they have left. We 
are thinking now only in terms of 
physical condition, competitive 
training and morale. 

These are factors that can't be ig- 
nored, even by those in charge at 
Washington who claim to have more 
important matters to tliink about 

For practically this entire college 
enlistment will be in war service 
training, only waiting the call to ac- 
tive duty. 

Most Feed Crops 
Best Put in Silage 

Keeping Essential 

Vitamin A Necessary 

^' ^-^— ^— 

Almost any feed crop, is wofth 
twice as much an acre when made 
into silage as it is in the barn or 

Thit is especially true of corn and 
grain sorghum crops which will not 
make much grain. It applies equal- 
ly to sweet sorghums, Johnson grass 
and sudan. 

If corn and grain sorghums can be 
left standing until the grain is hard, 
they will make better silage, provid- 
ed the majority of the leaves still 
are green. Nevertheless, these feeds 
should be made into silage even 
though the leaves are burned or

dried up. But all vitamin A would 
be lost in the latter case. 

Vitamin A is very essential, 
especially if silage is its only 
source, and the main origin of 
vitamin A for livestock is green 

It is even more necessary to have 
the sweet sorghums, such as redtop 
cane and seeded ribbon cane, ripe 
for making silage. Immature sweet 
sorghums make sour silage. John' 
son and Sudan grasses should be 
headed out and the seed in the dough 

Any of the grasses and leg- 
umes should be dried until their 
water content ia reduced to 35 
or 40 per cent before being put 
into the silo. This means about 
half dry enough to bale for hay. 

When a majority of the leaves of 
corn, grain and sweet sorghums, and 
Johnson and sudan grasses are 
green, it is not necessary to add 
water if the feed is chopped in one^ 
quarter-inch lengths or less with 
an ensilage cutter when put in the 

If the majority of the leaves 
are dry, it will be necessary to 
add enough water to wet the feed 
about like a heavy dew. Damp- 
en bundle feed even though the 
majority of the leaves are green. 

POR three nights Old Man Coyote 
" had stolen up through the Green 
Forest with the coming of the black 
shadows and had hidden among the 
aspen trees where Paddy the Beaver 
had cut his food, and for three n»ghts 
Paddy had failed to come ashore. 
Each night he had sfcgmed to have, 
enough food logs in the water to 
keep him busy without cutting more. 
Old Man Coyote lay there and the 
hungry look in his eyes changed to 
one of doubt and then to suspicion. 
Could it be that Paddy the Beaver 
was smarter than he thought? It 
began to look very much as if Paddy 
knew perfectly well that he was 
hiding there each night. 

"That means that he comes ashore 
hi the daytinle and cuts his trees," 
thought Old Man Coyote as, tired 
and with black anger in his heart, he 
trotted home the third night. "He 
couldn't have found out about me 
himself; he isn't smart enough. It 
must be that some one has told him. 
And nobody knows that I have been 
over there but Sammy Jay. It must 
be he who has been the tattle-tale. 
I think I'll visit Paddy by dayhght 
tomorrow and then we'll see!" 

Now the trouble with some smart 
people is that they are never able to 
beUeve that others may be as smart 
as they. Old Man Coyote didn't 
know that the first time he had visit- 
ed Paddy's pond he had left behind 
him a footprint in a little patch of 
soft mud. If he had known it he 
wouldn't have believed that Paddy 
would be smart enough to guess 
what that footprint meant. But that 
is exactly what Paddy did do, as 
you and I know. So Old Man Coyote 
laid all the blame at the door of 
Sammy Jay, and that very morning 
when Sammy came flying over the 
Green Meadows Old Man Coyote 
accused him of being a tattle-tale. 

Now Sammy had flown down to 
the Green Meadows to tell Old Man 
Coyote how Paddy was doing all his 
work on land in the daytime. You 
see Paddy had twice given Sammy 
a terrible fright, once by cutting an- 
other tree so that it almost fell on

The problem of what to send • 
sei'vice man has been solved by the 
men themselves. Tobacco tops the 
list of gifts- service men prefer 
from the follts back home, accord- 
ing to nutperous surveys. If you 
have a friend or relative in the 
armed forces— Army, Navy, Ma- 
rines, or Coast Guard— who smokes 
a pipe, or rolls-his-own, a pound of 
his favorite tobacco is very much 
in order. A big "favorite with many 
service men is Prince Albert, the 
world's largest-selling smoking to- 
bacco. Local dealers now are fea- 
turing Prince Albert in the pound 

can for 'the men in the service.

Magnificent Job ' 

The services are doing a magnifi- 
cent Job in maintaining physical fit- 
ness— army, navy, marines and 
coast guard. They are giving mU- 
lions the chanceto box, swim, wres- 
tle, run and ]uihp. 

This same program should be car- 
ried through for the remainder of 
the nation— for the kids coming up 
and for the older men who have yet 
to-be called. We have concentrat- 
ed too much on the outstanding few, 
who needed this training less than 
the others. 


An effort is being made to grow 
in the United States some commodi- 
ties which are becoming scarce and 
will soon be unattainable. Manufac- 
turers and dealers in medicines, 
spices, and condiments who depend 
on a steady supply of these botan- 
icals from abroad, are urging that 
they be produced here in greater 

Sage, the savory herb used in cook- 
ing, can be easily and profitably 
grown here. Our American sage Is 
usually of a better quality than the 
imported article, and growers are 
being offered very attractive prices 
for their crop. It is used widely in 
the meat packing industry and is also 
a standard groimd spice for the pan- 
try shelf. 

Sage is one of the 12 species of 
the mint family and can be started 
by cuttings or simply dividing the 
roots. From this family come many 
other crops which are commercially 
marketed. Spearmint is used for 
mint sauces and for flavoring chew- 
ing gum; peppermint yields oil and 
menthol used in cdnfections, flavor- 
ings and medicines. Pennyroyal la 
used in medicine and the lemon- 
scented leavei of bergamot are 
much used in perfumes.

Sammy. So he had made up his 
mtad to get even by telling Old Man 
Coyote about Paddy's work by day. 
But when Old Man Coyote began to 
call him a tattle-tale and" accuse 
him of having warned Paddy and to 
threaten dreadful things, he straight- 
way forgot all his anger at Paddy 
and turned it all on Old Man Coyote. 
He called him everything he could 
think of, and this was a great deal. 
That afternoon Old Man Coyote 
tried his new plan. He slipped into 
the Green Forest, looking this way 
and that way to be sure that no one 
saw him. Then very, very softly 
he crept up through the Green For- 
est toward the pond of Paddy the 
Beaver. As he drew near he heard 
a crash and it made him smile. He 
knew what it meant. It meant that 
Paddy was at work cutting down 
trees. With his stomach almost on 
the ground he crept forward Uttle 
by little, Uttle by litUe, taking the 
greatest care not to rustle so much 
as a leaf. Presently he reached a 
place where he could see the aspen 
trees, and there sure enough was 
Paddy sitting up on his hind legs 
and hard at work cutting another 

Old Man Coyote lay down for a 
few minutes to watch. Then he 
wriggled a Uttle nearer. Slowly and 
carefully he drew his legs under him 
and made ready for a rush. Paddy 
the Beaver was his at last! At Just 
that very minute a harsh scream 
rang out right over his head: "Thief! 
thief! thief I" 

It was Sammy Jay who had silent- 
ly foUowed him all the way. Paddy 
the Beaver didn't stop to even look 
around. He knew what that scream 
meant and he scrambled down his 
Uttle path to the water as he never 
had scrambled before. And as he 
dived with a great splash Old Man 
Coyote landed with a great Jump on 
the very edge of the pond.

With Your Co-operation Greyhound Got 'Em Home for The Holidays! 

Thanks to you, a most critical period in war- 
time bus transportation has been passed with 
flying colors. 

Just before Christmas, Greyhound asked you 
to "Give your Holiday trips to men in the 
service" — and you who have learned to de- 
pend upon Greyhound for your travel needs, 

As a result of your postponing such trips, 
thousands of men and women in uniform 
were able to go home by bus to spend 
precious hours with loved ones. 

iWhile helping menjbers of the armed forces, 
you also made travel smoother and more con- 
venient for war workers^and others whose 

trips could not wait. It's cooperation like 
this that makes it possible for Greyhound 
and other bus lines to carry on the tremen- 
dous mass-transportation job that is so com- 
pletely essential to winning the war. 

Now the holiday period is passed, Greyhound 
will make every effort to see that the service 
you count on is available when you need it— 
and with th« utmott c om f e rt and convenience 
that war conditions will permit. 

We suggest, however, that you phone or call 
upon your nearest Greyhound agent well in 

t^vance of any trip. He can help you choose 
ays and schedules that will be most conven- 
ient for you and best for wartime travel.

liblary services maintained by the 
Ai-my and Navy, (2) To provide 
reading matter for the U. S. O. 
houses outside the camps, and for

so when selecting the books to 
give in this Drive, be guided oy 
the slogan "Any Book you really 
want to keep is a good one to 

In the line of fiction, the Nat- 
ional Committee has found the 
following to be the most popular: 
Adventure, aviation stories, his- 
torical novels, humor, mystery, 
sports and western. In other 
fields books desired are such as 
those on applied psychology, cur- 
rent affairs, military publications, 
crime and the F. B. I., scientific 
books (Not older than 1935), well 
illustrated books of all types, 
sports, biography, history, and 
texts in present use In law and

Begin now to look for the books 
you intend to give. Next week a

precincts will be published, and 
everyone will have the opportunity 
to "Be a Book Buddy."

Optician — Jewelers 

Established 1857 

Tlie State and Federal Veter- 
inary department have announced 
that Boone County cattle herds 
fire eligible for a sample T. B. test 
this spr'ng according to H. R. 
Forkner. County -Agent. 

Boone is a Federal T. B. fr-=e 
accredited county. This means 
that the cattle of the county have 
been tested free from T. B. and on 
the. sample tests taken every five 
years find that the cattle are 99'-! 
percent or higher free from T. B. 
If the percent of reactors runs 
above ':; of I'l the county losses 
it's accrediated standing. 

It is the advantage ol all dairy 
owners that they cooperate in this 
testing program and aid in keep- 
ing the herds of the county free 
from disease. Only five percent of 
all cattle will be tested in the 
sample test which will start in the 
near future. There is no charge 
for the testing service and owners 
receive indemnity on the apprais- 
ed value of the reactors. Dairy- 
men especially requesting their 
herds be tested will receive con- 
sideration according to A. S. 
Barnes of the U. S. Bureau of 
Animal Industry.

Miss Juinetta Varble of Sparta 
and John Moore of Ghent sur- 
prised their many friends by 
motoring over to Carrollton and 
having the nuptial knot tied. 
They were married in the parlors 
of the Baptist parsonage by Rev. 
Perry, local pastor who in a very 
impressive manner made them 
husband and wife. The bride is 
the attractive and talented daugh- 
ter of Mr. and Mrs. C. N. Varble 
one of Spartas leading busiriess 
men and is a senior in Gallatin 
Co.'s high, school and a favorite 
among both old and young. The 
groom is the fourth son of Mr. 
and'SlrsL Jesse Moore of Ghent 
and a young man of splendid 
character. They were attended 
by Mrs. Ray Moore of Warsaw 
and Mrs. Robt Moore of Ghent. 
They returned Monday to receive 
parental blessings and will go to 
housekeeping in Ghent where the 
groom has prepared a home.'The 
entire community extends hearty 
congratulXlions for a long and 
happy life together.

Tobacco Brinrs 
$1,234 An Acre. 


Prentice Bass of Taylor county 
produced 4,840 pounds of Ky. 16 
burley tobacco on two acres, 
bringing him $2,468.40. Every leaf 
was picked up. The land on which 
the tobacco was grorwn had been 
sowed to alfalfa and bluegrass 
five years ago. Last Spring It was 
iven light application of manure, 
high grade fertilizer and chicken 
manure, Farm Agent C. V. Bryan 
notes that tobacco growers who 
turned under a good green man- 
ure crop were well repair in bath 
quality and quantity of tobacco. 

The market outlook for all farm 
products produced in 1943 is good 
according to Roy E. Proctor, farm 
management specialist in address- 
ing a group of Boone County 
farmers at the county agent's 
office in Burlington last Thuis- 
day. Farmers were urged not to 
be, "penny wise and dollar 
foolish." in 1943, maximum pro- 
duction means maximimi profit 
and greatest aid for victory in our 
war effort. 

Mr. Proctor pointed out that 
the farmer this year is confronted 
with the most difficult production 
problem in history along with an 
acute labor and power machinery- 
shortage. The first problem is: 
one's attitude, an attitude and a 
will to do the job regardless. A. 
man with power machinery can 
do five times as much work as a 
man with one horse equipment. 
Those who own power equipment- 
plan to do custom work for neigh- 
bors" in rush periods and when the 
machinery is not otherwise in use. 
It is expected the neighbor will' 
either pay for this service or ex- 
change labor. 

Thei* are many other labor- 
saving practices that may be- 
carried out in the 1943 production 
Including the self feeding of hogs, 
the balancing of crops and Uve- 
stock production so that labor is 
more evenly distributed and ta 
relieve presure of rush seasons. 

The keeping of a complete faira 
account book was recommended 
as one of- the best ways for a far- 
mer to calculate Ids income tax 




Victorious Russian Drive Sweeps On 
As German Army Faces New Threats; 
Political Situation in North Africa 
Inflamed by Peyrouton Appointment 

(EDITOR'S NOTE: When opinions *r« oxprened In theie eoUmni 
WMttrn >ewspaper I'nion'i newi unalyaU and not neccBiarll; of' 

their arc those ol 
this newspaper.) 

And the Draft 

In an effort designed to keep more 
worker? on the nation's farms the 
War Manpower commission has put 
into eflfect a broad liberahzation of 
agricultural deferment requirements. 
Draft boards' are now to be guided 
by a "new criteria" including lib- 
eralized application of the war unit 
production standard and the addi- 
tion to the list of ess.ential crops 
for which worker* may be deferred. 

Heretofore farmers have usually 
been required to be responsible for 
16 "farm units." Now as few as 
eight "units" could result in hold- 
ing off induction. (A unit, for exam- 
ple, is one dairy cow, or 20 acres of 
wheat, or 20 feed lot ckttle, among 
other items deemed essential in the 
war food program.) 

MALTA.— After beating off Axis attacks, a convoy laden with the 
necessary sinews of war, drops anchor In barboic at Malta. The Axis does 
everything possible to halt the stream of supplies pouring Into this vitally 
important British island base, but the convoys are getting through. This 
photograph was made from on board an accompanying British six-inch 
gun cruiser which lielped escort the ships through the Mediterranean. 

For the Russians 

There were reports of later Rus- 
sian successes following the break- 
ing of the siege of Leningrad but 
that story carried more drama for 
the Russian people themselves than 
the reports of all the rest. For Len- 
ingrad is Russia's second city and 
it had been almost a year and a 
half since there had been any land 
communication between it and the 
rest of the country. 

As the Red army battled to widen 
the five-mile corridor through which 
the siege was first broken there were 
dispatches from aU along the 1,200- 
mile front reporting new losses for 
the Nazis. At all points the German 
lines were sagging before the newly 
found power of the Russians. In- 
spired by the news from Leningrad, 
named for their revolutionary lead- 
er and considered the home of the 
revolution itself. Red soldiers re- 
ceived a real boost in morale which 
aided in maintaining a high degree 
of momentum in their offensives. 

Immediate objectives that loomed 
closer now were the Latvian border, 
southwest of Velikie Luki, Rostov on 
the lower Don, complete annihilation 
of the armies before Stalingrad and 
added progress in the direction of 
Kharkov, the Pittsburgh of the 

DeGaullists Object 

► New flames were ignited under 
the bubbling cauldron of political 
dissatisfaction in North Africa when 
Marcel Peyrouton, veteran French 
politician and former Vichy minis- 
ter of the interior, was named gov- 
ernor general of Algeria. 

The appointment rekindled the 
popular alarm which was felt when 
Darlan first took office. The Fight- 
ing French at once jumped on the 
appointment, terming Peyrouton a 
former Fascist sympathizer. Head- 
quarters of the DeGaulle forces re- 
called that in April, 1941, Peyrou- 
ton said that "Only madmen believe 
in a British victory." The London 
Daily Herald called it a "political 
blunder of the first water. Peyrouton 
is distrusted by Frenchmen of all 
parties . . ." 

Added to this confusion was the 
fact that the Allies soon must decide 
on a supreme commander for the 
showdown with the Axis in North 
Africa. The decision probably will 
be hastened by the rapid telescoping 
of the Tunisian and Libyan fronts. 

For Democrats 

While congress was huddling over 
Edward J. Flynn's qualifications to 
represent the United States and 
President Roosevelt in the South 
Pacific diplomatic front, Democfratic 
party chieftains assembled in Chi- 
cago to ielect Postmaster General 
Frank C. Walker to be his successor 
as chairman of the Democratic na- 
tional committee. In his acceptance 
speech Walker expressed a "distaste 
for oratory as a substitute for ac- 
tion" and further avowed that he 
was a "firm advocate of the two- 
party system." 

Victory in Papua 

and Aus 

Climaxing a series of 
movements by American 
tralian Infantry units. Allied ground 
forces captured Sanananda Point 
and Sanananda Village on the north- 
eastern coast of New Guinea. 

The capture of Sanananda Point- 
between previously captured Gona 
and Buna— took the last remaining 
strong Japanese point in that area. 
The remaining Japs were left in 
pockets about a mile west of San- 
ananda; faced with nothing more 
than suicide action. 

Aefial action saw Allied bombers 
sink an 8,000-ton Japanese cargo 
ship in the Bismarck sea and blast 
enemy airports and installations 
over a wide area of the Southwest 

Jap forces were cut into bits by 
Australian and American patrols 
reaching almost every comer of the 
swampy area. Japan's last remain- 
ing strength in Papua had been deci- 
mated. Enemy outposts were little 
more than handfuls of troops, wait- 
ing an almost certain end. 

Attack Tempo Increased 

As aerial activity flared over a 
wide area of the Tripolitanian front 
the British eighth army continued its 
headlong assault against Field Mar- 
shal Rommel's fleeing but still intact 

An early British advance carried 
one of two attacking columns to 
within less than 50 miles of Tripoli 
— closer than Rommel came to Al- 
exandria last summer. 

Gen. B. L. Montgomery's most ad- 
vanced column had driven Axis 
forces from BenI Ulid and was in 
contact with the enemy near Tar- 
huna, only 40 miles southeast of 
Tripoli. The second British column 
drove along the coastal road, reach- 
ing a spot 90 miles c-east of Tripoli. 

Even as the British pushed on, 
many observers were of the opinion 
that Rommel had decided or had 
been ordered, to forget Tripoli and 
attempt to get into Tunisia to join 
Col. Gen. Juergen von Amim in a 
stand against the Allied assault from 
both sides. 

Stands Alone 

After Chile's senate had voted 30 
to 10 to break off diplomatic ties 
with the Axis, Argentina remained 
the only American country retaining 
relations with Germany, Italy and 
Japan. ' 

Chile's action came after weeks 
of wrangling over the issue and fol- 
lowing the vote. Foreign Minister 
Joaquin Fernadez left immediately 
to notify President Juan Antonio Rios 
of the action. President Rios fol- 
lowed this with a radio broadcast 
to his people. 

Chile's army and navy had ear- 
lier taken over control of strategic 
areas which bad been colonized by 
the Germans. These were mostly in 
the southern part of the country and 
included ports, mining centers and 
other vital areas. 


Social Security 

President Roosevelt is scheduled 
to receive from the department of 
labor a greatly broadened— birth-to- 
grave — social security plan. This 
was revealed by Secretary of Labor 
Frances Perkins at a New York 
Town Hall meeting. She said adop- 
tion of . such a plan would provide 
larger benefits including greater old 
age pensions, payments for all em- 
ployment interruptions and mater- 
nity and funeral benefits. - 

Premiums would increase pro- 
gressively to ^n amount equal to 10 
per cent of the worker's paycheck. 
During the first stages of the plan's 
operation these premiums would be 
paid jointly by the employer and em- 
ployee, much like the present social 
security program.- Then as the- num- 
ber of old age benefit recipients in- 
creased beyond the amount collected 
the government would step in to pay 
a share of the benefits. 

System Explained 

When OflRce of Price Administra- 
tion officials began explaining the 
system of point rationing it became 
immediately evident that points will 
vie hi importance with dollars and 
cents in the minds of the nation's 

Here is how the system will work: 
The sale of processed foods in cans 
and bottles will be stopped in retail 
stores a week before the rationing 
begins— some time in February. This 
will allow grocers to fill their 
shelves. On registration day, house- 
wives will take the family's No. 1 
war ration books to their local 
boards and apply for book No. 2. 

The consumer will have to declare 
the actual number of cans, bottles 
and jars of eight ounces or more of 

Washington, D. C. 

Due hi part to the fact that the 
U. S. navy had not had opportunity 
to profit from the experience of en- 
gaging in any major naval battles 
between 1812 and 1942, some of our 
biggest and fastest ships now under 
construction are being revised. 

The main factor being changed 
hi the bluieprints is extra precau- 
tion against 'fire. 

This Is the lesson learned from 
the aircraft carriers Wasp and Lex- 
higton, and the cruiser Boise, all 
swept by fire after the direct dam- 
age of battle. 

Since then the bureau of ships 
has made a study of fire hazards, 
finding that even an all-steel vessel 
can be swept by fire when tremen- 
dous heat is engendered, as from ex- 
ploding shells and burning oil and 

New plans call fdr elimination of 
linoleum flooring, substitution of 
spun glass for cork In Insulation, de- 
crease in paint, and elimination of 
interior woodwork. Also, there will 
be larger fire hose and better fire 
fighting equipment generally. 

Navy hopes to put an end to the 
grief of losing ships by fire after 
they have survived the battle. 

Note: In the War of 1812, fire was 
a real hazard to wooden ships. But 
in the- Civil wjtr tte only reareo*' 
gagement was between the Monitor 
and Merrimac which were not much 
bigger than modem escort vessels. 
In the Spanish-American war, there 
were no real naval battles and only 
one life was lost at Santiago, when 
an American sailor fell down a hatch 
on the Texas. In the World war, the 
U. S. navy got in too late to partici- 
pate in any naval activities other 
than convoy work.

PROBE: Among other subjects be-

the matter of war contracts and the 
house rules committee has decided 
to call before it high army and 
navy officials to explain why some 
such contracts were authorized. 
Those in question are contracts, 
which, it is charg&d by the house 
naval and military affairs commit-

One thing that didn't get out about 
the "surprise" party at the White 
House for Speaker Sam Rayburn, cm 
Sam's 61st birthday, was a little 
frill added by the President. 

Rayburn was called to the White 
House with other congressional lead- 
ers ostensibly to discuss the legis- 
lative program for the new session. 
But when the group arrived, all but 
Rayburn were ushered into the pri- 
vate office of Economic Stabilizer 
Jimmy Byrnes. 

The speaker was told that the 
President wished to see iiim alone 
for a few minutes. 

The two men discussed legisla- 
tive problems for a few minutes. 
Meantime, the President was keep- 
tag a sharp eye on the clock. Sud- 
denly he broke out: 

Sam, the reason I asked you to 
come ta here alone was to discuss 
a personal matter that has been 
worrying me." 

Rayburn eyed him curiously, said 
nothing. ^ 

"It's about you, Sam," conttaued 
the President without batting an 
eyelash. "We're old friends and I 
feel I can talk to you frankly. I've 
got reports from Capitol Hill that 
the Democrats are dissatisfied with 
your leadership. They thhik you're 
getting too old to be speaker." 

At that precise moment, Demo- 
cratic Congressmen Cliff Woodrum 
of Virghiia, Bob Ramspeck of Geor- 
gia, Republican Leader Joe Martin 
of Massachusetts, Rep. Jim Wads- 
worth of New York and other house 
members burst toto the President's 
office, led by Jimmy Byrnes. 

Together they began singmg 
"Happy Bh-thday to You" at the top 
of their voices. 

"That was perfect timteg, fel- 
lows," beamed the President He 
had planned it all very carefully

What has happened to the scheme 
for bringing Mexican labor into the 
United States to help fill the gap 
left by the drain which industry and 
the draft have made on the farm? 

In trying to get an answer to that 
question I turned up some rather 
interesting data which I with to sub- 
mit as an answer to that slur on our 
fair city that you hear frequently 
these days: "Washington is a mad 
house." It may at least explain what 
makes the wild cat wild. 

I first went to an official In one 
of the war agencies with my query 
about Mexican labor. He is a very 
energetic, sincere worker, an anti- 
New Dealer, 'who is here trying- to 
do his share to win the war. I am 
not permitted to use his name. He 
said: ' 

. "Soinebody injjur government with 
a lot '6J high ideals went to the 
Mexican government and made an 
agreement to send Mexican laborers 
to the United States. They arranged 
to have a contract which would deal 
with each laborer as a free agent 
and put ta all sorts of conditions 
which the farmer who had to hire 
him had to agree to, including hous- 
tag, transportation, and a mtaimum 
per diem rate. 

"But tastead of sendmg over ex- 
perienced farm laborers the Mexican 
government gathered together a lot 
of ne'er-do-wells and hoboes. It 
didn't work. In fact, the farmers got 
less help than usual. The trouble 
was that before the social-conscious 
officials took a hand the American 
farmers had been making contracts 
with padrones (bosses) who got the 
money and the workers, established 
the working conditions and paid the 
workers as they saw *flt. They 
brought ta trataed workers and they 
made them work. But the starry- 
eyed members of the Mexican and 
American governments wouldn't 
hear of making use of the padrone 

That sounded very bad to me, so 
I called up the offices of Senator 
Downej^ol California and Senator 
McFarland of Arizona, who are 
members of a special committee 
holding hearings ta California and 
New Mexico on this question of im- 
ported farm labor.

had been under the government's 
plan, ta the beet tadustry, how it 
worked ta the great guayle rubber 
fields of which 500,000 acres have 
been planted as part of our home- 
grown rubber program. How the 
senator was arranging with the state 
department for the admission of 
more foreign labor. 

Then I talked with Senator Mc- 
Farland. He said he would go along 
with Senator Downey in some of 
the thtags but not alL He said the 
farmers' complatat ta Arizona was 
that they got neither the' quantity 
nor the quality of workers they want- 
ed. Cotton and dairy workers are 
their chief needs. He said that some 
of the farmers wouldn't sign a con- 
tract which the American govern- 
ment required. All protested agatast 
it. The objection was to the clause 
which established a minimum daily 
wage. The farmers said that the 
worker came out to the field ta the 
momtag, picked until he wanted to 
quit and then weighed ta. But ta 
order to be sure he bad worked 
his minimum hours it was necessary 
to have a timekeeper and a book- 
keeper to check on his time and the 
whole process was too expensive. 

Long-Staple Cotton 

He said, on the whole, tiiat the 
Arizona farmer didn't get as many 
workers as needed and didn't get as 
good ones as he had expected. 

On the departmentbf agriculture'! 
program for the next year there la 
a quota of 160,000 acres of long- 
staple cotton. One hundred thousand 
acres are allotted to Arizona. Nor- 
mally, we import most of our long- 
staple cotton from abroad. 

Senator McFarland said thatunless 
tome solution of the famT labor 
problem was reached, unless the 
present contract was modified and 
the Arizona farmers were assured 
more Mid better hands at a lower 
cost, thiey wouldn't be able to tavest 

their money ta pl^nttag the long- 
Staple cotton the government wants. 
Neither Senator Downey's office 
nor Senator McFarland's had any 
comments on the padrone system. 
Then I talked with a department 
of agriculture official. He was of 
the opinion that the contracts had 
worked out fairly well, and he point- 
ed out that there was an "ide- 
ological" as well as a practical ob- 
jection on the part of the farmers 
to the contract— the objection to es- 
tablishmg a mtaimum wdge for farm 
labor. ' 

' Mere are three quite different view- 
pomts. They represent a tiny frac- 

,tion of the tangle which Washtagton 
has to uhtangle, has to reconcile. 

If Washtagton is a madhouse, who 
made it mad?

Mac Arthur Lauded 
For Leadership 

When the chapter of war history 
dealing with the Battle of New 
Gutaea is written, it will be one of 
the most important ta the whole 
book. That is what military men 
here tell me. 

They began telltag me that bit by 
bit just before the second front ta 
Africa opened. Then the African 
story wiped everythtag else off the 
first pages. Recently they have been 
talking about New Gutaea again. 
They keep saying to me a little re- 
proachfully, "the American people 
don't realize what MacArthur has 
achieved down ta that jungle coun- 

These aren't the "MacArthur 
men"— there are such ta the army, 
a little group of hero worshipers who 
perhaps worship a bit more fervently 
than logically. But the men who 
have watched the New Guinea cam- 
paign from Moresby straight up over 
the Owen Stanley range and down 
the other side and up to the eastern 
coast of the island tell me that Mac- 
Arthur and the leaders he has about 
him have done a great and a sig- 
nificant job. 

It is great because he has accom- 
plished what it was freely predicted 
the Japs could not do (and didn't). 
It is significant because it has proved 
that Australians and Americans, giv- 
en the training, can beat the Jap at 
his own game. They can (and have) 
beaten him with less tratatag, with- 
out the fatalistic quality of the Jap, 
whose religion is to die rather than 
surrender even when dytag isn't a 
military necessity. 

There are two reasons, which mili- 
tary men put forward why the battle 
of New Gutaea has not been patated 
ta its true colors — represented ta its 
true importance. One is the fact 
that MacArthur leans backward ta 
his communiques. Another is a 
peculiar copy-desk prejudice of 
American newspapers, which causes 
them to play down reports from the 
distance and play up the reports 
from the war department to Wash- 

There are two reasons why Mac- 
Arthur's reports are given out from 
his headquarters ta Australia tastead 
of by the war department ta Wash- 
tagton. One is that the Australians 
(and perhaps MacArthur) want it 
that way, and another is because 
American newspapers, who pay a 
lot of money to keep correspondents 
ta that area, don't like to have their 
men scooped by Washtagton. 

Why He h Winning 

MacArthur may have another rea- 
son for not ballyhootag his achieve- 
ments. He was beaten ta Bataan. 
He may feel that until he has a 
cohiplete victory to his credit, he 
doesn't want to stag too loudly. 

But MacArthur has won so far ta 
New Gutaea because the men under 
his command were able to do what 
they never had a chance to do on 
Bataan because of lack of numbers, 
supplies and food. 

On New Gutaea they were able to 
do better than the Japs could, the 
very thtags which the Japs could do 
best And they did It ta the ktad of 
jungle country ta which that "best" 
was even better. They were able 
to adapt themselves to the environ- 
ment which required a ktad of flght- 
tag and a ktad of endurance for 
which the Japanese had spent years 
ta prepartag. The ktad of flghttag 
that resulted ta the fall of Stagapore 
and the ktad which the conventional 
British soldiers — even the Far East- 
em experts— said was impossible.

——Som9 Itetna Which 


—By James R. Young 

fTho Was 13 Year$ in Tokyo for INS. 


honoring the First Lady ot China, 
established by her many friends in 
this country, has been given further 
impetus by Wellesley College alum 
nae on hei: arrival here 25 years aft- 
er her graduation. 

TWO JAPS, former students in the 
United States, are reported handling 
the 12,000 man Jap invasion army 
units in Northern Japan. These men 
. would specialize in a follow up, after 
combat troops, in commandeering 
radio stations, telephone switch- 
boards, gasoline stations, highways, 
railways, bus lines and power 
houses. One is Lieut. Henry Shi- 
manouchi, a former San Francisco 
resident, and as of Dec. 7, 1941, in 
charge of Japan's so-called cultural 
society of Rockefeller Center. The 
other, Capt. Frank Matsumoto, was 
athletic director of Waseda Univer- 
sity in Tokyo who entertained visit- 
ing American college and profes- 
sional athletic teams. 

Dr. Barton 

A BICYCLE, the chief means of 
transportation in Shanghai, now 
„ costs ^0,000 in Chinese currency. 
The Japs, pre-Pearl Harbor, were 
the world's largest bike manufactur- 
ers, making them from processed 
American scrap at $3 apiece and 
selling them on a one year Install- 
ment plan to the natives of Indo- 
China, Siam and Malaya. In the 
drive on Singapore, Bangkok and 
Rangoon, the Japs seized the bi- 
cycles and literally peddled their 
way through the peninsula. Tokyo 
has an estimated 2,200,000 bicycles. 
Few have coaster brakes, which are 
the costliest part. The ingenious Jap 
manufacturers decided to leave off 
the expensive part— if you want to 
stop, fall off. 

THIS WINTER Shanghai wiU wit 
ness hundreds of deaths from freez- 
ing and insufficient food. The Euro- 
pean refugee colony, numbering 
several thousands, will suiler, too. 
The Japs, last Winter, seized all 
wheat and rice, and sealed Red 
Cross supplies — not one ounce or a 
single bottle of medicine was per- 
mitted in use, The Japs prefer to 
have thousands die in Shanghai's be- 
low zero weather than survive and 
require to be fed. 

Physicians who have followed the 
history of the vitamins will remem- 
ber that vitamin C was one of the 
first vitamins to gain fpme as it was 
found that scurvy 
could be prevented 
by eating foods rich 
in vitamin C. 

Later came the 
very great interest 
in vitamin D be- 
cause it prevented 
rickets (rachitis) 
which up to that 
time had been wide- 
spread. Today, for- 
tunately enough, one 
rarely sees a case of 
misshapen legs in 
children that is due to rickets. 

StiU later came the knowledge of 
the benefits derived from vitamin A; 
infections warded oil and night 
blindness prevented. 

Finally came vitamin B, with its 
family— Bl, B2, B complex and oth- 
ers—as a nerve builder, a definite 
treatment" for neuritis, an appetite 
builder and an aid to various run- 
down conditions. 

Lately we have been reading 
about vitamin B complex as delay- 
ing the onset of fatigue. An interest- 
ing experiment on the use of vita- 
min B comple* in the treatment of 
fatigue is recorded in the Journal 
of Industrial Hygiene and Toxicolo- 
gy by Drs. E. Simonson, N. En?er, 
A. Baer and R. Braun. These phy- 
sicians put 23 persons to various fa- 
tigue tests. First they found what 
each individual could do in the way 
of wgrk before he became fatigued; 
then 12 were given vitamin B com- 
plex hi tablet form and 11 were giv- 
en plain tablets similar in appear- 
ance containing no vitamin B com-, 
plex but with the same taste. 

From the standpoint of fatigue of 
the muscles those given the vitamin 
B complex tablets showed no great- 
er improvement than the ones who 
received no vitamin B complex. 
However, from the standpoint of 
fatigue of the nervous system, meas- 
ured by the flicker light test, con- 
siderable difference was shown. Of 
the 12 given the B complex, 5 re- 
quired a great deal more time to 
become tired, 3 showed moderate 
amount more time and 4 showed 
no change. In the 11 who received 
no B complex, there was no change 
in the amount of time it took to 
cause tiredness of the nervous sys- 

CHILEANS are being told by the 
Jap ambassador down there that if 
their country breaks with the Axis, 
Japan wiU bomb the long shore line. 
Japan for years was one of Chile's 
great nitrate buyers. In return the 
Chileans obtained Jap cotton piece 
goods, pottery, rayon, uniforms and 
military equipment. Boatloads of 
Chilean nitrate, sold by a British 
controlled company, went to Japan 
in return for^mdtaitions arid agricul- 
ture. Now we rmst use nitrate on 
the Japs in the Pacific. Just as our 
oil and gasoline have taken the Japs 
to the Solomons and the Aleutians. 
Or, as Dr. Lin Yutang explains the 
paradox, we sold the Japs the Ninth 
Avenue Elevated so they could make 
bullets. Now we have torn down the 
Second Avenue Elevated to make 
bullets to fire back at the Ninth Ave 
nue train. 


committee should include besides 
Clare Boothe Luce, a famous med- 
ical missionary from China, Dr. 
Walter H. Judd, elected from Min- 
neapolis. He was one of many warn- 
ing us years ahead of Japan's meth- 
od of attacks. Possibly the Luce- 
Judd combination might shake down 
some of the mentally stagnated 
members of the State Department 
And here's a tip: These Chinese are 
indignant that we have not cleaned 
house in the Far Eastern division of 
Mr. Hull's department, a year after 
war started. We'd better clean 
those career barnacles from the 
ship of state, if we expect future co- 
operation from the Chinese.

Some months ago articles ap- 
peared in the medical journals in 
which two prominent physicians 
warded those over 40 of the dan 
gers of exercise. They pointed out 
that after 40, we are on the way 
down hill and that exercise would be 
dangerous to heart and blood ves- 
sels. Neither the heart nor the blood 
vessels should be asked to do any 
unnecessary work, not even "lift a 

Most physicians will agree with 
the idea that strenuous exercise in 
those at and past middle age is not 
necessary to maintain health and 
can do more harm than good. 

What is a middle-aged man or 
woman who walks to his or her em- 
ployment instead of riding, does the 
housework, or plays a round of golf 
a couple of times a week, or takes 
five minutes' exercise every morn- 
ing, going to think about this busi- 
ness of "not lifting a finger unnec- 

He or she is going to lift the fin- 
ger, the arm, the feet, bend the 
body, walk home hundreds of yards 
at least daily because they know 
that as far as they are concerned 
the exercise they take is necessary 

We all have sense enough to know 
what would happen to our heart 
muscle, our lungs, our jnuscles, our 
blood vessels, our digestion, our 
skin, if we loafed or sat down all 
the time. .Every physician knows 
that he must not let the middle aged 
or the elderly loaf or take to bed. 
They would soon become bedridden. 

Simple everyday exercise such as 
walking, housework, noncompetitive 
goU, or swimming; stimulates heart 
action, keeps blood vessels elastic, 
stimulates flow of blood through all 
the organs and working processes, 
maintains the appetite an* prevents 

What these physicians who ad- 
vised "no exercise" are really tell- 
ing us is that, as we grow older, 
we must get rid of the idea that we 
"need" regular strenuous exercise 
to keep ourselves healthy. This 
strenuous exercise may lessen our 
reserve strength. i

Early settlers of the American 
West (1870-'80) relished the meat 
of the wild camel. Camel steaks 
were a favorite dish. These wild 
camels were descendants of a herd 
imported from Egypt for army use 
in 1856. 

Turned loose because they caused 
horses to stampede (camels have a 
strange odor), the camels multi- 
plied rapidly until wiped out by 
American hunters in search of the 
fine-flavored meat.

a surplue of cotton which, along 

with our production of rayon and 

our production and supply of wool

limited only by the available pro-

If your lights go out suddenly and your neighbors' lights remain on, the 
chances are that a short circuit or overload somewhere in your home has 
caused a fuse to blow. This is really for your protection for if the fuse did 
not blow and cut off the current, damage to your housewiring might result. 
Here are some suggestions that will help you avoid blown fuses and prevent 
iieedless interruptions in your electric service: 

Repair faulty appliance and portable lamp cords. Cords with worn 

insulation or loose connections that permit bare wires to come together are 

_ a common cause of blown fuses. Inspect yoiir cords regularly and repair 

them or have them repaired if they show signs of wear. Protect them from 
fraying, craclcing, breaking or kinking. 

Keep fabric-covered cords away from water. If moisture soaks into a 
cord it may cause a short circuit as water is an excellent conductor of elec- 
. tricity. Washers and other appliances used around water are equipped with 
rubber cords for this reason. - '" 

Do not overload your washer. Filling tub too full of clothes or feeding 
too many pieces into wringer at one time may cause an overload on die 
motor that will resuh in a blown fuse. Stiff grease in the gear case, caused 
by storing washer outdoors in cold weather, may do the same thing. 

Do not connect too mdny appH,ifnces on one circuit. The average house- 
hold branch circuit is wired to carry 15 amperes or 1725 watts. Connecting 
lamps and appliances totaling more than this wattage on one such circuit 
at one time may cause a fuse to blow. 

Do not. use defective appliances. Have them repaired by a competent 

electrician or appliance dealer at the first sign of trouble. » . 

Blown fuses may also result from defective wall switches, outlets and other 
parts of your wiring system, although more often the causes are those men- 
tioned above. In the event of trouble with your housewiring, it is best to call 
A qu;»iified electrician to deal with it. .

THE STORY SO FAR: Ann Let and 
Cole Cody, beneficlarlei under two IdenU- 
eal wills made by Early BlU Cole, ar- 
rived In Bald Eagle by stage coacli^ only 
to learn 6l BUI Cole't death a few daya 
previously. Ann, accompanied by Aunt 
lenlter, went ont to Old Bill's ranch the 
lollowlni day and was (reeted by Ranee 
Waldron, who, posing as Old Bill's neph- 
ew, made it evident they were not wel- 
come at the Ranch. While Ann Lee was 
■laklnK It Just as plain she had no tnten- 
Hon of leaving, Cole Cody arrived. Ann 
and Cole had a misunderstanding during 
the Journey to Bald Eagle, and she wai 
not pleased to see him at the Ranch. Is 
Uet, ihe ordered Um out. 

Now continue with the story. 



"You're not a very good shot, are 
you?" said Cole Cody, Jazy and slow- 
■poken and impudent. Even his eye- 
brows mocked Ann. 

"I ■ could shoot your 'toenails off 
•nd never blister your leet," she 
told him. 

"Then why only mess me up like 
this, making It hurt like seven kinds 
of hell and at the same time do me 
no more harm than a hot stove lid 
dropped on your toe?" 
- "It's that darned gun o( Cal- 
houn's! It does its own sboeting 
when it feels like It You try it 
•ometime, smarty!" 

"Trying to apologize? Meaning 
you didn't go to do it?" He was 
■till jeering at her. Maybe It was 
just as well then that Cal had re- 
trieved his gun and taken it off with 

"Mt Cody," said Ann, very prim 
and very polite, "I am sorry, ip ■ 
way, that I shot you. You see—" 

"In a way? That's nice! What 
way?" snapped young Cody. 

"There Is such a thing as being 
humane, or anyhow human," said 
Ann. "You loiow very well that 
you are not welcome here. What's 
the use pretending? You and I don't 
like (Bach other— for my part," she 
•xploded, "I hate the sight of you! 
Get well as soon as you can — and 
go somewhere else. So, what I mean 
by being sorry I shot you, it's Just 
that if you weren't all shot up you 
could be on your way right how." 

He sUd out of his chair, the tight 
bandage about his midriff irking 
him, and stood up. , 

"I'm here to stay," he told her 
flatly. "I didn't come here follow- 
ing you, either. If I'd known you 
were here, maybe I couldn't have 
come at all. And, not meaning to 
be tough with you. Just the same I 
can ask you what the devil you are 
doing here anyhow? At my place." 

"Your place! W^, you—" 

"We sort of find it natural to call 
each other 'You' and th^n gulp and 
■top, don't we?" he said. 

"Your place! What on earth are 
you talking about? Have you gone 
crazy? Oh, maybe you always were 
crazy! Of course, that's it! That ex- 
plains everything!" 

"Listen, and don't be so smart 
You're kind of pretty, and maybe 
it's gone to your head. Men, I 
guess, seeing you at a dance, all 
dolled up, have told you a lot of 
lies, and you think you're Cleopatra, 
maybe, or the Queen of Sheba. 
Whoa! Didn't I say wait a minute? 
I'm answering questions right now; 
you say what do I mean by saying 
this is my place. Well, that's what 
It I«, or anyhow going to be. Me, 
I'm old Early Bill Cole's heir. This 
is the Kmg Cole Ranch, and it's 

"Why, you — you—" 

"I've told you I'm getting tired of 
eur calling each other 'You-you's.' 
Where's your originality?" 

"You— liar! You're worse than 
that man Ranee Waldron. He says 
Its his place too — and it's mine! 
Now, Mr. Cody, will you— Will you 
tuck your shirt tail in, and go climb 
a tree?" 

What Mr. Cody did was scratch 
his head, thick-thatched with abun- 
dant dark red hair, and hold his 
peace a moment and do a bit of 
thinking, staring at her all the while. 
He told himself that this was a sort 
of funny lay-out, his running into 
this obnoxious girl so consistently 
for one thing, her making a claim 
like that for another, the letter from 
old Early Bill Cole for the first of 
all hi a chain of events that— No 
chain at all. just a crazy quilt of a 

Pondering, he did tuck his shirt 
tail in. Also he produced the mak- 
ings of a cigarette and very slowly, 
bis mind on other matters, he build- 
ed his cigarette. And in due course, 
lighted it He inhaled deeply; he 
■ent a stream of bluish smoke ceil- 

"It's still reasonably early in the 
morning," he said after he had driv- 
en her frantic with his leisureliness. 
"You've got lots of time to comb 
your hair and wash your face — Go 
look In a looking glass, and you'll 
do both!— and get into Bald Eagle 
before noon. If the stage doesn't go 
where you want it to go today, It'll 
be pretty sure to go tomorrow. So 
you've got time to listen while I 
tell you something. Mr. Early Bill 
Cole, rest his wild soul. Early Bill 
being dead now, made up his mind 
he wanted the right sort of man to. 
take care of the things he had to 
l«ave behind him on taking the long, 
floe-way^ trip. He nominated me for 
the Joh. Hp even took time to write 
out a will He left every damn 
thtaig he had to William Cole Cody. 
And that's me. Do you begin to get 
ttM general idea?" 

, "When I was a very little girl," 
she told him sweetly, "I used to 
say that I hated things. Castor oil 
was one, and there were others. 
But, dear me, I didn't Icnow what 1 
was talking about For only now, 
Mr. Cody, I do know now what the 
word 'hate' means. Need 1 go fur- 
ther? Of course not. Now, suppose 
you tell me what, if anything at all, 
you are driving at? Someone has 
told you, no doubt, that Mr. Early 
Bill Cole willed everything he had 
to me?" 

Cole Cody had a way of exhaling 
cigarette smoke that, she was dead 
sure, could infuriate anyone on 
earth. He did some exhaling. Her 
nails bit into her pink palms. But 
Spartanlike, she clenched her teeth 
and waited. , 

Outside, in the patio. Ranee Wal- 
dron had stopped at the sid^ of a 
window, Ustening, one would have 
judged, so still and attentive had he 
become, that he was far and away 
more than merely casually interest- 
ed. At least so deemed Aunt Jeni- 
fer, spying on him from a kitchen 

At last Ann spoke up, and very 
quietly, considering who it w^s 

"Mr. Early Bill Cole," she said, 
spacing her words nicely, "was a 
gentleman and a very fine man. .He 
was a friend of my father's. He 
knew that he had to die. So he 
made his will. It's quite too bad. 

With Ann watching his sUghtest 
move, be shot the key home. 

Mr. Cody, to disappoint you, but 
Mr. Cole left everything he had — to 
me. Yes, that's what I said. He 
made a will to that effect and — and 
I've got that will! Now— Will you 
get well and go!" 

He moved over to the table, feel- 
ing a trifle unsteady and blurry in 
the head, and sat on the table's 
edge, one foot swinging. 

"We'll soon find out about all 
this," he said. "I've got a key— a 
key old Early Bill sent me — " 

"A key! You've got a key! Wh— 
what sort of key?" 

"A key that's made to unlock 
something," he snorted at her. 
"What do you suppose, asking what 
sort of key? Now. when I find what 
it's to unlock— There's an old devil 
in town they call the Judge — He's 
crazy as a bed-bug. no question. 
But he knows a lot of things. Be- 
tween him and another crazy old 
coot name of Doc Joe — " 

"Doc Joe isn't a crazy old coot! 
He's a dear! But— but— Where did 
you say you got your key?" 

"Forget that I've told you as 
much as I have! Are you and I 
old friends who tell each other all 
our heart's secrets? Are we — " 

"Shut up! You talk so darned 
much and s^y so little — you make 
me mad! Tell me about your key. 
Did Early BiU— You say that he 
sent it to you?" 

"Well, what if he did? Maybe 
you've got the lock it fits! Let's 

"Maybe Lhave! And if you've got 
the other A. I'U show youl I'D 
show you wno owns the King Cole 
Ranch and all that goes with it! 
Where's your precious key, Mr. Cole 

"Where's your lock for It to fit?" 
he shot back at her, and grinned his 
most malicious grin. 

Suddenly they were aware of Aunt 
Jenifer in the doorway, clearing her 
throat to ■ wamiM "Ahem!" Her 
eyes drifted sidewise toward the 
window, and managed to Jerk their 
attentiiuit in that direction, where- 
upon Ranee Waldron made the l>est 
of the situation, tapping on the pane, 
calling to them. 

"What's going on in there? I 
thought you two, after the lady had 
popped a bullet into the gent, wotild 
have had enough of each otbtr. Mind 
if I drop in and Join in tha pow- 


He moved away from his vantage 
point, and a moment later the door- 
way framed him. He stopped there, 
studying them. 

"I don't think I know you very 
weU," said Cody. "Do you happen 
to be one of my guests?" 

"We met just now," Ranee re- 
minded him, cool and insolent, as 
was his fashion. He pinched his 
chin, looking reflective. "Guests, 
you said, didn't you? Whose guests, 
I.can't but ask. You mean I'm your 
g^est or you're my guest or — Just 
what did you have in mind?" 

Cole Cody, drained of his strength 
as he was, felt a strong urge to 
batter all the smug insolence off the 
man's handsome face. As a mat- 
ter of fact he experienced an all but 
overwhelming desire to spoil Mr. 
Ranee Waldron's manly profile for 
all time. 

"It's like this," said Cole Cody, 
very slow-spoken. When he spolce 
that way he was generally saying 
one thing and thinking far afield; 
right now he was regarding Ranee 
Waldron's empurpled nose and dal- 
lying with the thought of taking even 
more painstaking care of that nose 
when opportunity afforded. "You 
heard part of what was said; I 
guess out there at the window, you 
didn't miss a word. So suppose we 
go on from there. 1 don't know 
who you are—" 

"Why not get straightened out at 
the start?" said Ranee Waldron rea- 
sonably. "Me, I'm Ranee Waldron 
and just blew in here a few days 
ago. As far as I know, or anyone 
else seems to know, I'm next of kin 
to that rare old bird. Early BiU 
Cole. I had me a hunch that he 
kicked off without making any will 
at all, and in spite of the several 
mentions of wills that I've heard 
since, I'm stUl of that notion. If I 
happen to be right— Well, then, this 
outfit, lock, stock and barrel, be- 
longs to me! Got all that, Mr. 

"That's quite a speech," conceded 
Cody, nodding approvingly. "Yep, 
I got it Only it's my bet you're out 
on a limb. Here are the three of 
us, you and Miss Lee and me, all 
putting in our claims." He made a 
wry face, then wipe*' it away with 
the heel of his hand. "Like so 
many turkey buzzards sitting on a 
fence! It makes me sort of sick at 
my stomach. 1 got a notion to high- 
tail out of here and let you folks flght 
over a dead man's boots!" 

"Scat!" cried Ann Lee. "You're 
overdue some other place!" 

"No. I'm sticking until I get things 
straight Why old Early Bill Cole 
should make me his heir, I don't 
know and can't guess. But he might 
have had his reasons. I never knew 
him, I never even ^w him. But 
one thing sticks out like a sore 
thumb: His name was Cole, and I'm 
Cole Cody! How's that happen? 
Must be that we're related, or some- 

He reached into his pocket, groped 
a minute and dug up a small, . flat 
key— and did little Ann Lee's eyes 
all but start from their sockets! 

"There!" said young Cody. 
"There's the key to the mystery, 
as the feller says— Maybe! Who'll 
brmg me a lock for my key?" 

Ann Lee had a way, aU her own, 
of getting from the place where she 
was to the place where she wished 
to be, that was like nothing else on 

And with her cherished carpet- 
bag clutched tight. She got it open, 
she ran a hurrying hand down into 
it, she plucked out an old, black 
iron box. An iron box with two 
locks, as anyone might see. 

"If your key fits one of these 
locks— This one! Try it!" 

Cole Cody chose to drive her wild. 
He tossed his key ceilingward, caught 
it and played with it, and he laughed 
at her. 

"So that's it is it?" he jeered at 
her. "A strong box with two locks, 
and you've got a key for one, and 
are going clean crazy like Pandora 
and Blue Beard's wife, trying to 
burglarize it! And no can do — with- 
out the other key! Mine! Well," 
and he never spoke more drawling- 
ly, "there's no hurry, is there? How 
about waiting until tomorrow? May- 
be it might be best to wait until 
my wotmd heals over! That's an 

And he tossed his key again, 
caught it and shoved it back into his 
pocket And he could have sworn 
that he heard Aunt Jenifer giggle! 

Ann Lee opened her hand and 
showed him a key very much like 
his own. She tossed it up. Just as 
he had done, and caught it; she held 
it between her thumb and finger— 
and sneered at him. And how littla 
Ann Lee, when she put her mind to 
it could sneer! 

Ann aet the box down hastily, and 
shot her key into the proper lock. 
When the mechanism gave its satis- 
fled responsive cUck, she looked up 
at him triumphantiy. Little Ann Lee 
could crowd a lot of things into one 
swift glance: I've done it Mister! 
How about' you? Just four-flushing? 

Colo Cody wondered, himselt 
Wall, here was the time, to find out 
about things. With Ann watching 
his slightest move, as though she 
suspected him of being able to ac- 
complish any weird sort of sleight- 
of-hand, not trusting him; with both 
the lively Aunt Jenifer and the sar- 
donic Ranee Waldron pressing dose, 
he shot the key home. 

It fitted the lock.

Of The Moody Bible Institute of Chicago.

Lesson for January 31 

Lesson subjects and Scripture texts se-

Council of Religious Education; used by 


LESSON TEXT— John 6:814. 30-35. 
GOLDEN TEXT — Jesus said unto 
them, I am the bread ol life.— Johrj 8:35. 

Spiritual truth becomes undei^ 
standable to us as it is put in the 
language of our daily hfe. Jesus 
was the IMaster Teacher of all times, 
and made use of graphic figures to 
present the message of salvation. 

He spoke of the wind, of water, 
and in this lesson of bread. Even a 
child knows about s"Uch things and 
understands the good news. Bread 
is still the staff of life. It speaks 
of life and health, of saJtisfacUon and 

Beginning with the five small bar- 
ley cakes (and two fishes) which a 
provident litUe boy had taken with 
him into the wilderness, Jesus 
preaches by miracle and by pre- 
cept of eternal things. One is glad 
that a bright lad was more thought- 
ful than aU the adults that day, for 
he provided the occasion for the 
miracle and the message. 

I. DaUy Bread (w. 8-13). 

The great multitude had followed 
Jesus to the other side of Galilee 
where He had gone to rest. They 
sought Him out and He had compas- 
sion on them— these sheep without 
a shepherd (Matt. 8:36). That inter- 
est was first spiritual, for "he be- 
gan to teach them many things," 
but It was also practical In the 
realm of daily life, for He saw that 
they were physically hungry. 

His appeal to Philip revealed the 
lack of faith which at times afflicted 
the disciples. They knew they had 
the Son of God in their midst, and 
yet they were bound by the matter 
of dollars and cents, of portions and 
— well, they^ust wished Jesus would 
send these people away. That 
would solve the problem. Oh, yes, 
"there is a lad here," but what he 
has amounts to nothing. 

All this was perfectly natural. 
They talked just like most of us do 
when we are up against a similar 
prohlem. But the point is that they 
(and we too!) ought to realize that 
"littie is much when God is in it." 
If we let Christ have all that we 
have and are, it will be adequate 
for every need. 

, Are you worrying about your lack 
of money; your inability to do things 
for Him? Axe you limiting God when 
He would like to take what you 
have and multiply it by His bless- 

Notice that though there was plen- 
ty, there was none to waste. What 
was over .was gathered up. God 
never encourages waste. Perhaps 
we in America may learn that les- 
son the hard way in these days — 
but having learned it let us not for- 
get it 

n. Heavenly Bread (w. 14, 30, 31). 

The people (probably incited by 
the religious leaders) after their 
first surprise at the miracle, sought 
Him out hi the temple and demand- 
ed a greater miracle. Jesus never 
put much dependence on those 
whose faith rested on miracles, and 
we do well t.o be careful of those who 
must have something spectacular 
going on aU the time if they are to 
be interested. 

They contrasted His miracle of 
one meal with the repeated mira- 
cle of the dally manna— the bread 
from heaven — under Moses. Jesus 
makes it clear that He Is not in 
competition with Moses, for the 
manna came not from Moses but 
from God. Those who seek signs 
and wonders had better get their 
eyes off such things and get them on 
God who is the Giver of every good 
and perfect gift. 

"Their plea for heavenly bread 
gave Jesus the opportunity to tell 
them about the true bread from 

m. The Bread of Life (w. 32-35). 

Feeding the body is important, but 
the real need of men is for spiritual 
food. Daily bread is a food that 
perisheth (see v. 27), but the "meat 
that endureth unto eternal life" is 
received by faith In Christ (v. 29). 

Instead of a sign, or the passing 
blessing of daily sustenance, Jesus 
presents Himself as the bread of 
Ufe which will etemaUy satisfy the 
deepest hunger and thirst of the 
human soul. 

Those who teaCh that Christ is 
but our example, givhig Himself as 
the spiritual bread to those who by 
development of character are seek- 
ing to be like Hlm^ should read 
verses 47 to 61 of this same chap- 
ter. Here He makes cleac^that by 
the giving of His flesh in the death of 
the cross everlasting. life comes to 
the believer. 

It is only the man who eats of 
this bread, who by faith makes him- 
self partaker of the death of our 
Lord, that can have eternal life. 

This must be done In the right 
way— the way of faith. ^i§be people 
said, "Lord, evermore give us this 
bread" (v. 34). One wonders wheth- 
er some of them did not say It scoff- 
Ingly, and others perhaps still with 
the thought of daily bread for their 
bodies. Among them, however, 
were surely some earnest souls who 
that day saw the light of eternity 
through His wonderful words about 
the bread of life. 

Wake Up and Shine . . . for a Hearty Breakfast! 

(See Recipes Below) 

Winter Breakfasts 

Though the wind may howl moan- 
fully and the icicles crackle coldly 
at your window 
these mornings 
when you arise 
to meet tlie day 
and all its tasks, 
a hot, well-bal- 
anced breakfast 
is bound to bring 
you to the alert 
in double quick 
time. Fruit or fruit juice will wake 
you flrst, then eggs, hot cereal, 
rolls or flapjacks will do the rest 
toward getting you on your way. 

Citrus fruit crops are especially 
good this winter and will be at your 
breakfast service with all their rich 
vitamins, minerals and health-giv- 
ing qualities. Their sparkle and 
freshness will give you a new start 
these busy mornings. 

Vitamin Cereals. 

It's a wonderful Idea to follow up' 
the fruit course with one of those 
quickly prepared hot cereals which 
are so rich In vitamin Bl — that 
important vitamiii you need daily 
for preventing nervousness, fatigue 
and resUessness. 

There are several ways of doing 
up the hot cereals. The quick-cook- 
ing wheat and oat cereals may be 
readily prepared along with the rest 
of breakfast— In just a few minutes' 
time. If you have a deep-well cook- 
er on an electric range you can 
place the cereal in glass jars along 
with dried fruits you are able to 
obtain, turn on the unit overnight 
and have fruit and cereal ready-to- 

Don't hesitate at cooking the 
quick-cooking cereals longer — they 
are improved In flavor and more 
palatable if you give them a few 
extra minutes. 

Coddled Eggs. 

Coddled or soft cooked eggs are 
made by bringing a sauce pan of 
water to a good boil. Then turn out 
the heat, transfer into it the eggs 
with a spoon. Cover and let stand 5 
to 10 minutes depending upon the 
consistency of egg you desire. This 
Is a good way to fix eggs — you can 
place them In the water while 
you're getting the rest of the break- 

Change Your Breakfasts. 

Fried mush is a wonderful break- 
fast food; serve it with syrup, but- 
ter and honey, and even fried apple 
rings— for a late Sunday morning 

Toasted English muffins teamed 
with poached eggs— and a piece of 
broiled ham ta- 
between wIU work 
wonders toward 
getting the fami- 
ly on its way out 
Df bed. • 

Packaged pan- 
sake mixtures 
will speed up the 
tempo at break- 
fast time. Serve them with butter 
or vitaminized margarine — honey 
and butter syrup, melted together, 
or dark corn syrup flavored with a 
maple extract are all that could be 
desired, luscious indeed. 

No, I haven't forgotten omelets! 
For a fluffy omelet allow 3 eggs for 
2 people. Separate eggs, and beat 
each separately. Add % tablespoon 
cream to yolks, salt and pepper. 

Lynn Says: 

Saying it Briefly: Saute minced 
onion and green pepper with left-

r\lSCUSSIONS lately have been 
'-' flowing with the length and tur- 
bulence of Midwestern rivers con- 
cerning the names of all-around 

In these arguments, many of them 
started in army camps, we have 
h^d «uch names as Jim Thorpe,- 
Bronko Nagurski, Samtny Baugh 
and many others. 

As a composite star, we have Just 
heard from' an old friend we'd like 
to enter in this com- 
petition. In any 
mass -formation of 
prominent celebri- 
ties his name might 
be, swept aside. 

Here are his qual- 
ifications — a 168- 
pound plunging,

back at Vanderbilt 
around 1908 — high- 
class college boxer 
GrantlandRice — Professpf of Eng- 
lish at Amherst— 
author of five volumes of extremely 
high-class verse, largely sonnets— 
now, in addition to his English 
teaching, in charge of boxing at Am- 
herst along the lines of war train- 

His name Is David Morton, one 
of Dan McGugln's favorite football 
players and one of Amherst's best- 
liked professors. 

Dave Morton couldn't hit the line 
with Thorpe or Nagurski, or pass 
Uke Baugh. But he was still 168 
pounds of crash and smash. 

But neither ol these men could 
box with him— and neither could 
write his sonnets from "Harvest," 
"Ships in Harbour" and other pub- 
lished works. 

And I have an idea none of these 
could teach English at Amherst with 
quite the same effectiveness.

Strong for Boxing 

Here Is a letter from Dave Mor- 
ton that explains Itself— 

"I welcomed your emphasis on 
boxing for soldier training in a re- 
cent column. (I'm running the box- 
ing at Amherst.) All you say about 
parry and thrust and feinting Is true. 
Plus two other things. Keeping on 
balance— set for oflfense or defense 
—every second under all conditions. 

"Discovery (for beginners) of the 
snrprishig marghi of endurance and 
vigorous action after being hurt. The 
uninitiated don't know they have It. 
They learn this from boxing. 

"These two things go into the list 
of wartime dividends from boxing 

"At Amherst boxing is compul- 
sory now for every studeut I have 
150 a week, taking Instruction and 
mauling one another around. They 
like it, for the most part, and all of 
them want what It gives— condition- 
ing, co-ordination,, skill In offense 
and defense, capacity for absorbing 

"Don't let anyone tell yon the col- 
lege student Is soft. I. take eight 
or ten hours a week (and other 
things around the Jaw and body) 
learning that that is an exploded 
myth. He's wlllhig— and he's de- 
termined to learn how to give and 
take, and to be •kUlfnl as well." 

Boxing's Worth 

When over 60-year-old Tony Bid- 
die is willing to meet a bayonet 
fighter with bare hands— when Tom- 
my Loughran takes the bayoneteers 
on with boxing gloves, you get the 
main idea. 

There Is stJU another idea that 
can be added to this list, brought 
out by another old friend known as 
Jack Dempsey. 

Lieutenant Dempsey could never 
hit a line, throw a pass or even 
take time to read a sonnet, much 
less compose one. 

But the Old Manassa Mauler had 
another good reason for boxing's 
worth. * 

"The big help," Jack says, "Is 
the confidence it brings to these fel- 
lows. They seem to 
think they are dubs 
at the start. And 
most of them are— 
don't Imow a right 
hand from a left 
hand. But after two 
weeks, when they 
find they can take 
a punch and can 
throw a few, they 
are different guys. 
They look you in

ent way. I've seen 

some of these boys hurt from a 

punch,' and I njade them stop for a 

rest. They don't like to be stopped. 

They want to prove they can get 

hurt and still keep swinging. And 

I'm now talking about clumsy-look- 

hig starters who couldn't even chin 

themselves twice when they came 

to camp." 

Many believe America has plenty 
of ^ood farm land. But surveys show 
that good crop lands are sharply 
limited. Of the pcesent area of 530 
million acres available for crops, 
only 340 million acres can be classed 
as really good land. The rest is too 
ste^, too rough, too shallow or too 
infertile for profitable cultivation. 

Labor, machinery and materials 
are short now, too. These conditions 
make it imperative for wartime agri- 
culture to adjust itself to producing 
needed crops with maximum ef- 

U. S. farmers can't afford to grow 
large quantities of crops not vitally 
needed. With present acreage and 
the large carry-over in storage, there 
Is an abundance of wheat, for in- 
stance. Boosting the wheat output 
now would not be a contribution to 
the nation's war effort Consequent- 
ly production goals for wheat called 
for a 12 per cent decrease In acre- 
age. Land thus released from wheat 

DADDY THE BEAVER floated in 
his pond and grinned in the most 
provoking way at Old Man Coyote, 
who had so nearly caught him. Old 
Man Coyote fairly danced with an- 
ger on the bank. He had felt so 
sure of Paddy that time that it was 
hard work to beheve that Paddy had 
really gotten away from him. He 
bared his long oruel teeth and he 
looked very fierce and ugly. ^ 

"Come on in; the water's fine!" 
called Paddy. 

Now, of course this wasn't a nice 
thing for Paddy to do, for it only 
made Old Man Coyote all the an- 
grier. You see, Paddy knew per- 
fectly well that Old Man Coyote has 
no love for the water, while Paddy 
lives in it most of the time. So. 
knowing that' he jvas perfectly safe, 
he just couldn't resist the tempta- 
tion to say some unkind things. You 
know he had had to be on the watch 
for days lest he should be caught, 
and so he hadn't been able to work 
quite so well as he could have with 
nothing to fear, and he still had a

urgently needed. 

More milk products, eggs, and 
meats are vitally necessary for war 
needs now. The goal for milk is an 
8 per cent increase. 

Reports from farmers indicate 
they will probably meet the pro- 
duction goals based on anticipat- 
ed needs of the United States and 
the United Nations. Some plant- 
ings may fall below goal levels, 
as In the case of peanuts and 
flaxseed for oils. But this is 
partially offset by soybean plant- 
ings in excess of coals. 

This adjustment to wartime needs 
Is being accomplished through acre-

lot of work to do to prepare for 
winter. So he told Old Man Coyoto 
just what he thought of him, and 
that he wasn't as smart as he 
thought he was or he never would 
have left a footprint in the mud to 
give him away. 

When Sammy Jay, who was lis- 
tening, and chuckling as he listened, 
heard that he flew down where he 
would be just out of reach of Old 
Man Coyote, and then he just turned 
that tongue of his loose, and you 
know that some people say that 
Sanyny's tongue is hung in the mid- 
dle and wags at both ends. Of 
course, this isn't really so, but when 
he gets to abusing people It seems 
as if It must be so. He called Old 
Man Coyote every bad name he 
could think of, and if there are any 
bad names Sammy doesn't know of 
no one else knows them. He called 
him a sneak, a thief, a coward, a 
bully, and a lot of other things. 

"You said I warned Paddy that 
you were trying to catch him and 
that that was why you failed to find 
him at work at night, and all the 
time you had warned him yourself!" 
screamed Sammy. "I used to think 
that you were smart, but I know 
better now. Paddy Is twice as 
smart as you are. 

Mr. Coyote la ever so sly; 
Mr. Coyote Is clever and spry; 

H' you believe all you hear. 
Mr. Coyote Is naught of the kind, 
Mr. Coyote Is stupid and blind; 

He can't catch a flea on his ear. 

Paddy the Beaver laughed till the 
tears came at Sammy's foolish 
verse, but it made Old Man Coyote 
angrier than ever. He was angry 
with Paddy for escaping from him 
and he was angry with Sammy, ter- 
ribly angry, and the worst of it was 
he couldn't catch either one, for one 
was at home in the water and the 
other was at home in the air, and he 
couldn't follow either. Finally he 
saw It was of no use to stay there 
to be laughed at, so muttering and 
grumbling he started for the Green 

As soon as he was out of sight 
Paddy turned to Sammy Jay. "Mr. 
Jay," said he, knowing how it tickled 
Sanmiy to be called "mister," "Mr. 
Jay, you have done me a mighty 
good turn today, and I am not going 
to forget it. You can call me what 
you please and scream at me all 
you please, but you won't get any 
satisfaction out of It because I sim- 
ply won't get angry. I will say to 
myself 'Mr. Jay saved my life the 
other day,' and then I won't mind 
your tongue." 

Now this made Sammy feel very 
proud and very happy. You know 
It is very seldom that he hears any- 
thing nice said of him. He flew 
down on the stump of one of the

gaining at the rate of about one 
pound per .day up to farrowing

and enough corn to put on the

time and energy to the war effort 
was emphasized today in a state- 
ment by R. E. Brugh, chairman of 
the local board. 

'.'Some people are impatient 
when they have to wait awhile for 
services or are critical^of the 
board's operation' if they camiot 
Immediately obtain all the in- 
formation that they want," R. £. 
Brugh said. 

Everyone must remember thit 
his neighbors and friends who are 
serving on rationing boards are 
trying to do the best possible job 
under conditions not always 

"Price Control and rationing 
have vital parts to play in winning 
the war. They affect everyone of 
us, and some people will be hit 
more than others. Members of 
the local board have no voice in 
the establishing of new regulat- 
ions — we are simply here to see 
that, they are carried out as 
equitably as possible in our own 
board area. 

"Many times we lack sufficient 
help and of course our «taff is 
constantly beseiged with inquiries. 
Board members do their best to 
keep abreast of regulations and 
amendments and are willing at 
all times to an.swer questions to 
the best of their ability. 

"It will be very helpful to the 
successful operation of price con- 
trol and rationing in this com- 
munity if citizens will remember 
that the board is composed of 
their friends and neighbor^ and is 
doing all it can do to carry out 
the objectives for which it was 

Rationing to Mean 
Fair Distmbutlon. 

With food rationing to start 
sometime in February, so that 
everyone will get his fair share, 
folks are wondering just what the 
food situation' is.^ Home eco- 
nomists at the Kentucky College 
of Agriculture and Home Econo- 
mics have this to say: 

There will' be an ample supply 
of cereals for people at home as 
well as for lend-lease use, even 
though the crop this year should 
be short. The supply of fats and 
oils is not as large as last year, 
but larger than in pre-wax years. 
Sugar supplies may be smaller 
than last year because of tran- 
sportation difficulties. 

More sweet potatoes and dried 
beans are in prospect for use be- 
cause of a big carry-over. Should 
the -white potato crop be only 
average, there will be fewer 
potatoes avaibable than last year. 

The supply of fruits and vege- 
tables will depend on weather, 
labor and transportation.' There 
will be more home canning th.\n 
ever before. Gardeners will be 
urged to plant vegetables with 
the most food value. 

Poultry and egg production will 
be increased, but so will overseas 
shipment; hence there will be less 
for home consumption. Fish sup- 
plies will be smaller. Meat will be 
rationed so that everyone will get 
his fair share. It is expected 
that the total supply of milk will 
be the same, but civilians will 
probably get less because of large 
shipments being sent over-seas.

From one to^e and a half 
pounds of sug«r to 100 Rounds of

Urgent Need 
For Tin Cans

Now, Advises Agent. 

Boone County Home 
Nursing Class 

The Bullittsville Home Nursing 
Class work will be completed next 
Tuesday, February 2nd, when the 
examination is taken. The classes 
have all been held in the nice 
comfortable home of Mrs. Bessie 
Hill, and we all appreciate this 
kind hospitality very much. We 
have had everything we needed to 
work with. The attendance and 
interest has been good. 

There is now time for the in- 
structor to conduct a class in some 
other section of the county. A 
desire has been expressed by some 
persons for this to be at Florence. 
Any one interested will please 
communicate immediately with 
Mrs. Jane Utz, Mrs. George Mor- 
ith, Mrs. R. C. Eastman, Mrs. 
Mabel G. Sayers or Miss Elizabeth 

The new text book, which has 
Just been put out by the National 
Red Cross is interesting and up to 
date in every way, giving a good 
understanding of emotional, and 
mental health, as well as physical. 

During the past eighteen 
months Home Nursing Classes 
have been taught in the foUowing 
commimities in Boone County: 
Burlington, Union, Hebron, Belle- 
view, Constance, Hamilton, Ver- 
ona, and a large class of colored 
people from all parts of the co- 

Walton and Petersburg have 
not had this work, and it is hoped 
they will make 41 request for a 
class in the near future. 

Mrs, Reamey Simpson spent

The need for tin is so urgent 
that we must save pvery tin can. 
Cincinnati has been named as 
one of the tin can collection cen- 
ters which has been definitely 
set up. It is up to each commun- 
ity to arrange for a local collect- 
ion center where cans can be 
stored until enougli are gathered 
to make a truck or car load. 

You will not be 'paid for cans as 
they bring just about enough to 
pay for liaulinc:. All old cans 
which have not been properly pre- 
pared had better be sent to the 
dump as the plants can only use 
those which are properly prepared. 

It is also up to each communit.v 
to get all their waste fats and old 
silk and nylon hosiery into som? 
collection center. 

Any store where hosiery is sold 
will be glad to collect your old 
worn out-clean silk and nylon 
hosiery. Rayon is not wanted at 
present — but some cotton on the 
silk and nylon hosiery does not 
prevent it's being used. 

Watch your local papers for 
dates of tin can collections. 

In Walton, the Walton Lumber 
Company will receive tin cans 
until enough are gathered to send 
a load. 

The Walton Advertiser will re- 
ceive your clean, silk and nylon

4-11 Clubs Organize 
Victory Projects 

Boone county 4-H Clubs this 
coming week will begin an inten- 
sive drive to enroll every rural boy 
and girl between eight and twenty 
years of age in a 4-H Victory 
Project according to H. R. Fork- 
ner. County Agent, and Mary 
Scott Moore, Home Demonstrat- 
ion Agent. The county has been 
given a goal of 845 members which 
according to available figures re- 
present over 90% of all boys and 
girls of club age in the county. 

The 4-H Victory project will 
stress production for victory and 
certificates will be awarded on 
accomplishments with less attent- 
ion to record books. The projects 
will include garden, com, seed 
hemp, castor beans, hogs, beef 
cattle, sheep, dairy, poultry, food 
clothing and labor, service. The) 
labor service project is a new pro- 
ject in which the boy or girl will 
be given credit for 150 hours of 
farm or home work with a record 
on what and where work was done. 

The ability of 4-H club, mem- 
Ijers to produce was shown the 
past year when 338 members in 
the county produced products 
valued in excess of $27,723.50. 

The ministers' Associatiin of the 
state and county have promised 
their support in calling to the at- 
tention of the people this coming 
week the importance of boy&iand 
girls work in the war effort; -^ 

Every boy and girl of club age 
is urged to join the local 4-H 
club in his or her community and 
to carry out a victwy project in 
1943. ElQrollment c^ds can* be 
•ecured at the county office for 
those who are unable to attend

effort according to H. R. Forkner, 
Couniy Agent. The planned pro- 
grams involve less of demon- 
strations and record keeping" and 
more of -the carrying out of ef- 
ficient practices know to increase 

More efficient Use of pasture 
and hay crops were listed first as 
the most important means of in- 
crcasmg both meat and milk pro- 
duction. Five pounds of good ' 
pasture have been 'found equal to 
one pound of corn, seven pounds 
of good pasture equal to 1 pound 
of soybean meal and 3'-' to 4 
pouijds of good hay equal to 1 
pound of cotton.-'eed meal. Greater 
use of simple home grown rations 
I will be used and have been found 
equally ^oC to high priced comp- 
licated rations. Salt, ground 
agricultural limestone and steam- 
ed bone meal have been found 
sullicient for all supplement min- 
erals requirements. 

Hogs raised on clean ground, 

free from worms are finished at 

$8.00 to $10.00 per liead or ap- 

' proximately $60.00 per litter 

greater profit. 

Poultry practices include clean 
chicks from flocks free from B. 
W. D. and Leukemia or Ran:;G 
paralysis. The lantern and elec- 
tric brooders will be used more 
1 widely, clean ground and abun- 
[ dant use of home grown feed wilfj 
plans for remodeling with home 
equipment many of the poorly 
equiped houses will be used. 
I Sheep and lambs are to be fed 
I for most efficient production and 
j lambs marketed at heavier weight. 
Sheep will be treated for the 
necessary control of stomach 
worms and purebred ram.s will be 
used to improve the weight and 
quality of lambs. 

The program involves greater 
use of cover' crop paitures of 
wheat, barley, Balbo rye and 
vetch, improved water supply, 
home gardens, increased aoreapre 
pi tomato and other commercial 
truck crops. A goal of 100 acres

Washington, D. C. 



The President. Prime Minister and the combined staffs having compUted 
tr plans for the offenane campaigns of 1943, have now separated in order to 
t them mto active and concerted execution." Official communique at Casa- 

. out 

On a High Plane 

, When the initial surprise of one of 
the war's greatest stories — the 
Roosevelt - Churchill "unconditional 
• iurfender" meeting at Casablanca 
to French Morocco— had died away, 
the world waited expectantly for the 
carrying out of the principles of 
grand strategy laid down by Allied 
military leaders. 

The Roosevelt-Churchill rendee- 
vous was the definite tip-oflf of big 
things to come. The Allied leaders 
made it dear that iheir countries 
would dig to the bottom of their re- 
•eurces— if necessary— in order to 
carry out the extermination of Axis 
war power as quickly as possible. 

From a gleaminc white villa near 

Casablanca came the great niews. 

' But only after complete secrecy had 

- officially ended. Correspondents re- 
garded the meeting as one of the 
best kept secrets of all time. Virtu- 
ally the entire war staffs of l)oth 
nations participated in the dramatic 
10-day discussions which ended with 
m press conference. But the presi- 
dential air voyage was shrouded in 
•uch secrecy that even some cabi- 
net members did not know Mr. 

Roosevelt was out of town. 

No one doubted but that further 
important developments would stem 
from the meeting. One of the most 
widespread predictions is that the 
North Africa -Mediterranean area 
will soon be organized into a sepa- 
rate theater of operations. Thus far 
the United States forces in that area 
have been part of the European the- 
ater. Separation of Africa and the 
Mediterranean Basin from the Euro- 

— pean theater might well be an im- 
portant factor in the Allied offensive 
campaigns of the year. 

Frenchmen Meet 

^ One of the most Important 
Achievements of the conference was 
the bringing about of a meeting be- 
tween Gen. Charles de Gaulle and 
Gen. Henri Giraud. Those leaders 
of the Fighting French and French 
Africa announced that they were In 
complete agreement regarding the 
liberation of their homeland. But it 
was regrettably clear that any 
merging of the two movements or 
any political alliance between them 
was far from 'being realized. 

Offensives Will Tell 

While the decisions made by mili- 
tary leaders are secret, observers 
indicated that concrete results 
would become apparent with new 
Allied offensives this spring. 

The basic questions settled ap- 
peared to be these: 

1. The first great effort must be 
to drive the Axis entirely from North 

_ Africa and free the Mediterranean 
supply line. 

2. If be has not been chosen al- 
ready, a supreme Allied command- 
er in Europe will be named. 

3. The anti-submarine warfare and 
air war against Europe will be 
stepped up. 

4. Europe wIU be invaded in one of 
three ways: Across the Mediterra- 
nean, a frontal attack on the chan- 
nel coast, or a conquest of Norway. 

5. Aid to Russia and China will 
be stepped up as much as possible. 

Of immediate Interest to the Unit- 
ed Nations is the naming of a su- 
preme military commander. The 
aame of Gen. George C. Marshall, 
chief of staff of the American army, 
Is most frequently mentioned. Many 
observers believed he had already 
•been decided upon to bead the com- 


For Russians . 

"I declare my appreciaUon to the 
command and to the gallant troops. 
Forward to the routing of the Ger- 
man invaders and their expulsion 
over the boundaries of our mother- 
land." So declared Josef Stalin in 
an order of the day broadcast by 
the Moscow i;adio. 

His words, urging the Russians to 
throw the Nazis out of their country, 
became the rallying cry of the Red 
army as it pushed forward in the 
big offensives aimed at Kursk. 
Kharkov and Rostov. After the fall 
of these strategic points there were 
still miles of hard battling ahead, 
but for the first time since the Nazis 
sUrted their invasion of Russia 
there were definite signs that Sta- 
lin's plea was not idle thinking. 

For everywhere along tBi far- 
flung front— from Leningrad to the 
Caucasus— the Reds added momen- 
tum to their drive. Russian military 
quarters estimated that 40 per cent 
of the Axis effectives had been 
knocked out by the Red winter of- 

At the same time diplomatic cir- 
cles revealed that United Nations 
air and sea supply lines to Russia 
were getting much better protec- 
tion than a few months ago because 
losses on these routes have dropped 
sharply. One recent U. S. convoy 
was reported to have reached Rus- 
sia without loss of a single ship. 
It was indicated thSt close U. S.- 
British - Russian co-operation was 
making this possible. 


Incentive Plan 

Under terms of the new "incen- 
tive" program as announced by Sec- 
retary of Agriculture Claude Wick- 
ard, U. S. producers stand to pick 
up an extra 100 million dollars in 
subsidy payments to be awarded 
for meeting or exceeding greatly 
expanded farm produciion goals. 

Applicable to soybeans, grain sor- 
ghums, peanuts, sweet potatoes, flax 
and dried peas, the program would 
pay growers of these crops extra 
benefits for each acre on which they 
exceed 90 per cent of their goal— 
up to 110 per cent of that goal. 
These areproducts which are badly 
needed in the war effort to meet 
deficiencies in vegetable oils and 
proteins for animal feeding and hu- 
man consumption. 

Wickard stated further that add- 
ed labor and materials will have to 
be available to farmers if they are 
to meet the goals of the prograna. 

*Land Army* 

As a means to this end Secretary 
Wickard and Manpower Commis- 
sioner Paul V. McNutt released 
their plans for the mobilization of a 
volunteer land army of 3% million 
farm workers. These would be gath- 
ered from ranks of women, the un- 
employed, clerks, and nonwar work- 
ers from cities and towns. 

Aimed at relieving the expected 
farm manpower crisis, which ex- 
perts predict wiU reach its peak In 
mid-summer, this land army would 
be gathered by the joint activities 
extension agents of the department 
of agriculture and by the field of- 
fices of the War Manpower com- 

More than 12 million farm woric- 
ers will be needed at the height of 
the farm season, said Wickard. He 
pointed out that the total farm la- 
bor force In December, 1943, was 

Gets an Airing 

For weeks Wishingfon has reports 
of unannounced differences of opin- 
ion between Rubber Administrator 
William Jeffers and other govern- 
ment and military oflflcials over pri- 
orities for the synthetic rubber pro- 
gram. Finally the dispute was 
brought into the open when Jeffers, 
in a Baltimore address, lashed out 
at army and ndvy expediters in war 

Congress decided to Investigate his 
charges and Donald Nelson, war pro- 
ducton chief, admitted the fact that 
a tift in government ranks had re- 
sulted over this issue: Most Wash- 
ington sources knew that President 
Roosevelt would be required to step 
In as arbiter In the dispute. 

The quarrel centers around steel 
priorities for synthetic rubber 
plants. Army and navy officials be- 
lieve that the$e plants should be 
built only in direct relation to the 
military needs of steel for the pro- 
duction of such items as high-octane 
gasoline, airplanes, escort vessels 
and merchant ships. Jeffers con- 
tended that the production efforts 
could be worked out in conjunction 
with one another and without ham- 
pering progress in his synthetic rub- 
ber program. 

Extension Sought 

Congress Is ahready considering 
tile extension of the lend-lease act 
by another year— to June 30, 1944. 
This early action has been taken to 
insure an uninterrupted flow of war 
materials between the United States 
and our fighting Allies. 

Though there are some verbal out- 
bursts expected on the role of Harry 
Hopkins in the program, even Re- 
publican minority leaders in con- 
gress predict approval of an exten- 
sion for the plan. Two years ago 
when It was first introduced the 
United States was not at war and 
there evolved one of the greatest 
legislative battles of history over 
passage of the measure putting the 
idea in motion. 

Representative Sol Bloom Intro- 
duced the new measure just one 
day after Edward R. Stettiniua Jr., 
lend-lease administrator, reported to 
congress on how the eight billion dol- 
lar distribution of aid was made to 
our Allies under terms of the pro- 
gram from March 11, 1941, to the 
end of 1942. 


Manpower Boss Paul McNutt haS 
been sessioning with the Truman 
committee regarding certain prob- 
lems which touch the lives of every- 
one. They include size of the army, 
where we will ge^ labor for farms, 
and whether the army shall be used 
in mines and industry. 

Senators on the committee were 
Unpressed both with the gravity of 
the prqblems McNutt placed before 
them, and his general views regard- 
ing them. 

McNutt revealed that Undersec- 
retary of War Patterson had been 
talldng to him about a total armed 
force of 11,000,000 to 15,000,000 men. 
This included not merely th^ army, 
but the navy, the coast guard and 
the marine corps— everything except 
the merchant marine. 

However, McNutt pointed out that 
shipping facilities and submarine 
warfare seriously limited the num- 
ber of troops which could be sent 
abroad and supplied. The figure he 
mentioned must remain a military 
secret, but he Indicated that with 
Hitler's U-boats working overtime 
around North Africa, it was going 
to be difficult to maintain a very 
large army in North Africa. 

In addition to North Africa, he 
pointed to the problem of suppling 
other war fronts In the Pacific, to- 
gether with Russia and England. 

As a result, McNutt doubted the 
feasibility of a world's record army 
now. He was all for giving the mili- 
tary and nivy what they wanted so 
long as it could be transported to 
the combat zones, but he opposed a 
huge army which would eat its head 
off at home, especially in view of 
the fact that morale deteriorates 
when an army is kept Idle. 

At one time, McNutt said, a large 
army at home was considered nec- 
essary to protect the United States. 
But now military experts felt this 
danger greatly lessened, though a 
certain number of reserves must bt

Washington, D. C. 
Some weeks ago the story of the 
real purpose of the visit to America 
of Madame Chiang Kai-shek was 
told in these columns. Since then 
it has been confirmed by unofficial 
statements credited to "Chinese 
quarters"- that her mission was a 
show-down fight for an Immediate of- 
fensive against Japan. In the in- 
terim two things have taken place. 
The Chinese government has let It 
be known unofficially that it realizes 
that America Is so occupied else- 
where that a drive on Japan with 
China as a base cannot be expected 
at the moment. This would seem 
to be a retreat It may b« only 
a demarche, for suddenly, from sev- 
eral other quarters Including Aus- 
tralian and Dutch with many Amer- 
ican voices echoing In between, the 
demand for "Hirohito Now" action 
Is being heard. 

It may be team work. 

The Chinese course so far is this: 
Chiang Kai-shek, discouraged be- 
cause of the futility of his pleas for 
additional supplies and help and 
America's failure to replace certain 
supposedly unsympathetic American 
represenUtlves la Chungking, he or-

'Draft system in reverse." 

nation by Undersecretary of War 
Robert P. Patterson. 

Speaking in Chicago, ^tterson 
advocated a post-war selective serv- 
ice system "in reverse" to function 
as a job placement agency. He ex- 
plained that war department rec- 
ords catalog each man according to 
occupation and the demobilization 
plan would be to Inform men about 
to leave the army of job opportuni- 
ties in their own fields. 


That France's sparic of independ- 
ence has not been extinguished com- 
pletely by the cold bruUlity of Nazi- 
Ism was proved when angry French- 
men fortified their homes in the old 
port district of Marseilles, firing 
on German soldiers who ordered 
them to evacuate the district. Ger- 
man authorities had ordered the 
evacuation apparently as a defense 

Seasure against possible invasion 
am North .Africa. The move was 

made after Nazi officials brought up 


field guns and infantry. 

Army and Industry. 

McNutt was asked a great many 
questions about farm labor, especial- 
ly by Senator Truman of Missouri. 
He repUed that the army had been 
unwilling to let men go home on 
furlough to help with the crops be- 
cause this hurt morale. However, 
he said the army was working on 
a plan to send army units Into farm 
areas. In battalions or companies, 
and have them help with farm work 
on an organized basis under army 

Though the njatter was not dis- 
cussed in detail, it seemed to be the 
unspoken feeling of the committee 
that too big an army going into in- 
dustry and agriculture on an or- 
ganized military basis might come 
close to developing a militarized sys 
tem in the U. S. A. similar to that 
against which we were fighting in 

Only one member of the' conunlt- 
tee. Senator Hatch of New Mexico, 
felt that the armed forces should be 
given free rein to go ahead and 
build up tremendous strength not 
subject to civilian checlc and super- 

Other committee members ex- 
pressed the view that It was only 
natural for any military leader to 
want the army to be the biggest In 
the world; so a civilian check-rein 
by the White House or congress 
was necessary to balance farm labor 
and industry against armed strength. 
Finally It was decided that the 
most important problems to lick be- 
fore Increasing the army to world- 
beating proportions was the subma- 
rine and shipping.

dered the Chinese military mission 
to the United States to come home. 
At the same time stories appeared 
to the effect that China felt that she 
was not being given a position of 
equality among the United Nations 
when it came to strategy and over- 
all planning. 

Polite Chinese 

Then the head of the Chinese mis- 
sion was called to the White House 
and it was explained that if he with- 
drew at this moment It would embar- 
rass the United States— would he 
please take a nice long trip Investi- 
gating American war-plants until the 
disturbance blew over. Perhaps he 
bad the promise of more of the 
products of these plants. But that 
has not been made public. In any 
case, the Chinese, noted for their 
politeness acquiesced. A little later 
Britain and the United States signed 
treaties with China relinquishing 
their extraterritorial rights there. 

But no sooner bad this step been 
taken than suddenly voices, unqfflcial 
to be sure, but fairly strident began 
asking If this "Hitler first" strategy 
was really sound? Couldn't Britain 
and the United States divide our ef- 
forts and still conquer? 

By the time this reaches prtat 
there may be similar statements 
from official sources down under, or 
from the vitally concerned Dutch, 
but meanwhile, either self -genera ted 
or systematically inspired, continual 
caUs for action in the Far East now 
are being heard. 

Of course, this Is not new. There 
were similar demands which had to 
be silenced by official utterances 
from Roosevelt and Churchill nearly 
a year ago which, If they had not 
sufficed alone, seemed effective 
when bolstered by the launching of 
the American and British expedi- 
tionary forces In Africa. 

Airplane'* Role 

By a change in the face of the 
war, I refer particularly to the role 
the airplane is to play. Aircraft is 
a vital factor in offensive and de- 
fensive warfare, but it has been dem- 
onstrated that airpower alone doesn't 
win and hold. This has been proved 
by the success of the convoys which 
have "gotten through" In the face ot 
terrible onslaughts by the Luftwaffe. 

Two~thlaga have served to cut 

down the airplane's offensive power. 
First, there is the improvement of 
anti-aircraft guns and second, in- 
creased experience in anU-aircraft 
warfare. I talked to a British naval 
officer who had*" been' aboard two 
convoys which fought their way to 
Murmansk and three that weathered 
the fierce attacks In the Mediter- 
ranean taking supplies to MalU. He 
emphasized the fact that green gun 
crews could not meet the onslaught 
of the dive bomber. Trained crews 

I talked with an American naval 
'officer who had been through Coral 
sea and the battles In the Solomons. 
He said that the anti-aircraft de- 
fense of our most modem warships 
was such that fighter plane defense 
was hardly necessary, that time and 
again it had been proved that this 
new equipment could raise a wall 
of fire which rendered air attack by 
the Japs futile. 

Now, how does this affect the 
"Hirohito now" argument? 

This way: We cannot leave Japan 
alone until we are quite ready and 
then expect to finish her off with an 
overwhelmhig ah^orce. As this is 
written, in spite of the constant and 
terrific bombing by Allied planes, 
the Japs have been able to complete 
and operate an alrbase at Buna, the 
nearest Jap outpost to Guadalcanal 
And further, the Allies, in spite of 
mass raids, devastating to ordinary 
buildings, have not been able to de- 
stroy the German submarine bases 
and submarine plants. 

Naoy and Lcmd Troopa 

We must therefore depend on our 
navies and our land troops for ttie 
final destruction of Japan. And. it 
Is argued, every day that Japan has 
to increase her fortifications, every 
day that she has to exploit the raw 
materials of her conquered territory, 
the harder It will be to beat her. 

It Is further argued that Germany 
cannot be absolutely beaten without 
terrific losses on our side, once she 
retreats within her own borders, a 
tight area, and can operate on a con- 
solidated and shortened front 

She can be starved out Therefore 
the argtunent is: Continue to move 
in tlu-ough the rim of occupied coun- 
tries untU an iron blockade is formed 
about the Reich, but meanwhUe be- 
gin an all-out offensive in the Far 
East; first with the capture of 
enough of Burma to get fin inlet to 
China, then, perhaps through the 
rest of Burma or ThaUand move Into 
China, re-arm, reinforce her, send 
in our own troops and attack Japan 
with China as a base. 

If that is not done now Japan may 
be able to isolate China, may be able 
with silver bullets to win some of her 
provinces to puppet independence 
and completely paralyze that valu- 
able ally and block off entrance 
through her territory, so it is argued 
by the "Hirohito now" advocates. 

War-Weary Europe 

The argument presented by the 
same proponents against waiting un- 
til we have finished "Hitler first" Is 
two-fold: When Germany finally falls 
it will leave Europe and its people, 
especially its fighting manpower, 
so war-weary that It will be hard to 
Interest them In a war half way 
around the wcfrld. We may get less 
help than we need for the job. 

Second, the process ol reaching 
Into Japan island by Island, is a 
slow process as we have found at 
Guadalcanal and on New Guinea. 
The northern half of New Guinea, 
a long-held Japanese stronghoM, will 
be harder to conquer than the part 
now won back by MacArthur'a men. 
We know that the Japs will not sur- 
render. We know that In some 
places, like the Netherlands Indies, 
where a large part of the population 
is at best hidifferent the Japs can 
live off the land. 

It would mean fighting every inch 
of the way against "no surrender" 
troops while the main Japanese 
armies were moving into China, foi^ 
tifylng the gateways to the continent 
Those are some of the arguments 
we may expect to hear frequently 
these days. Madame Chiang Kal- 
shek, when she recovers, may find 
It easier to be insistent upon aid 
than her husband's unsuccessful mil- 
itary men In Washington were."

'Mr. Five by Five' 

When a recruit Is being examined 
for the army, he should not hesitate 
to tell the examining physician his 
whole medical iilstory. Unfortunate- 
ly, unless he has 
had some definite 
ailment or injury, he 
may Jail to mention 
his "attacks of Indi- 
gestion" which h« 
has blamed on eat- 
ing the wrong foods 
or eating when tired 
or excited. He may 
feel that if he makes 
mention of these tri- 
fling attacks, the ex- 
amining physician 
may get the idea 
that he is malingering,"'swihging the 
lead." The result is that within a 
few weeks or even months of army 
life, he is brought before a medi- 
cal board and sent to hospital for 
observation and treatment. 

By failing to tell of his attacks of 
indigestion or bringing a certified 
statement of these attacks from his 
physician to the army medical ex- 
aminer, he may put the country to 
considerable expense and himself to 
much inconvenience. 

I am writing this because a report 
from Dr. J^ M. S)pellle, hi the Brit- 
ish Lancet states that of 247 cases 
of indigestion reported in one divi- 
sion 131 had definite organic dis- 
ease of the stomach and first part 
of small Intestine (duodenum) and 
were discharged from the service 
permanently unfit. The remain' 
ing 116, after investigation and a 
short course of treatment, were re- 
turned to duty. Dr. Smellie states 
that when it has been definitely 
learned that a soldier has ulcer he 
should be discharged from the army 
"and immediately returned to civil- 
ian life where rest, diet and tran- 
quillity of mind are possible. Be- 
fore enlistment these Individuals 
were leading useful lives in the serv- 
ice of their country and should be 
returned to such service. In the 
army they remain a burden to 
themselves and to others." 

Most physicians and physicians 
who have had much to do with "in- 
digestion" cases in civil and army 
hospitals will agree with Dr. Smel- 
lie, that a chronic Indigestion pa- 
tient is a real liability. 

The thought, then, is that family 
physicians and patients themselves 
should have no false sense of duty, 
but should state by certificate and in 
person if there is a history of acute 
attacks or chronic symptoms et In- 
digestion present.

Puss Listens In 

As youngsters when we wanted to 
show one another how strong we 
were we tightened the i9per arm 
muscle and the whole strength of 
the body was supposed to be In pro- 
portion to the size of our upper arm 

I went with an older brother to 
see Sandow, the strong man. and 
my brother pointed out the ridges 
of muscles across the front of his 

"That's what shows the strength 
of a man," my brother told me. "If 
you see those ridges stand out. It 
shows the man is strong every- 
where. Why, SandoWs abdominal 
muscles are so hard he uses them 
for a washboard!" 

I believed this at the time and In 
a sense have always believed It, be- 
cause the strength of the abdominal 
muscles has so much to do with 
the general health of the body, the 
proper working of the heart, lungs, 
stomach, liver, intestines. Well de- 
veloped abdominal muscles give the 
body the proper posture — abdomen 
is (kawn in, chest stands out, head 
Is erect— thus enabling all the or- 
gans in chest and abdomen to have 
room to work. 

A report from a European physi- 
cian points out that actual disease 
of the organs in the abdomen can 
be caused or aggravated when the 
organs fall downward due to lack of 
support by the abdominal muscles. 
This falling down of the abdominal 
muscles Is called ptosis. By exam- 
ining 100 bodies in which these or? 
gans were down low, he found that 
th.e distance the organs had dropped 
was in proportion to the weakness 
or weight of abdominal muscles. 

Now It Is not difficult to keep the 
abdominal muscles developed suf- 
ficiently to hold organs in place. It 
requires ]ust a little thought and a 
little exercise daily. At all times 
we should try to stand and sit erect; 
stand as tall as we can. The exer- 
cise is "trying" to touch the toes, 
keeping knees straight. The slight- 
est bend of the knees puts the work 
on the legs.

"The Light of the World Is Jesus! 
Who does not remember with, what 
delight we as children sang, "Come 
to the light, 'tis shining for thee . . . 
The light of the world Is Jesus." 

How precious was the truth that 
thus flooded our souls. Jesus Is the 
light Just as the sunlight sheds Its 
glory on an awakening world at 
dawn, so He sheds abroad the light 
of God In the hearts of men. As 
this portion of God's Holy Word U 
studied and taught, may the light 
break forth on many a soul caught 
in the bewilderment of this dark 

But that Is only one of the great 
thoughts around which our lesson 
centers. As Jesus here reveals 
Himself as divine, we consider four 
simple words, each fraught with 
rich meaning. 

I. Light (V. 12). 
The text says: "Then spake 
Jesus." When? Just after He had 
silenced the hypocritical accusers of 
a woman taken in sin, ^and bad 
spoken the word of peace to her 
troubled soul. She was to "go and 
sin no more" because she had met 
Him who is the light of the world. 
They that follow Him "shall not 
walk In darkness"; they are the 
children of light, they have the very 
light of life shining in their hearts 
and lives. 

Not only does Jesus light the be- 
liever's heart, but this light shines 
into all the dark corners of this 
wicked world, exposing sin and 
hypocrisy, and showing the way 
back to God. 

n. Salvation (w. 25-30). 

"Who art thou?" That is the ques- 
tion every man must ask and an- 
swer as he considers Jesus. Even 
neglect is an answer — a rejection. 

The answer of Christ in these 
verses goes te the very heart of the 
matter, for He takes the people 
right to the cross of Calvary. When 
they had crucified Him, they would 
know. Did not the centurion say: 
"Truly this was the Son of God" 
(Matt. 27:5i)? 

It is true today that no man knows 
Clirist -until he imowa Him as the 
crucified Saviour. Teacher, Exam- 
ple, Guide— all these He Is— but 
they are not enough, fut we sinners 
need a Saviour. May many today 
follow the example of veise SO. 

IH. Freedom (w. 31-36). 

Free! Four letters, but what a 
depth of meaning! Chains have fall- 
en off, prison doors are open. The 
one who was t>ound is free. 

But hers we are concerned with 
an even more important liberty, the 
freedom of the soul. Many there 
are who boast of their Independence 
but who are naught but slaves.

A. Cause of TltHlgo— white i^ots

cal used in tanning leather so that a 
cure may be discovered. There is

Jesus said: "Whosoever commit- 
teth sin is the servant of sin" 
(v. 34), not its master. 

How shall they be freed? Note 
three things in these verses: 

(1) A condition, "If ye continue in 
my word." This means not only a 
profession of faith, but a daily ap- 
propriation and realization of His 
truth in life. 

(2) A promise, "Ye shall Imow 
the truth." The philosophies of men 
profess to be a seeking after truth, 
but how few there are who look to 
the one place where it can be found 
—in Jesus durlst. 

(3) A result, "The truth shaU 
make you free." Truth always sets 
free. Men are enslaved because, 
as in some foreign lands, they have 
not had the opportunity to learn the 
truth or because they have rejected 

Men profess to seek truth in their 
research and In the process of edu- 
cation, but without Christ they can- 
not have real truth. Educational 
systems which rule Him out are 
deficient and lead to bondage rather 
than freedom. 

IV. Eternity (w. 56-59). 

Taking up their statement that 
they were Abraham's children (see 
w. 33, 37), Jesus enters into the 
sharpest controversy with the tm- 
belleving Jews of His entire earthly 
ministry. They were claiming Un- 
ship with a great man of faith wtio 
in ills day had looked forward to 
the coming of Christ (v. 56). Now 
He was here, and instead of receiv- 
ing Him as their Messiah they were 
ready to kill Him. 

Not only did they claim Abraham 
as father, but also God. Jesus told 
them that in their sin and unbelief 
they were of their "father the 
devlL" It is possible, then, to be 
very religious, to follow the tradi- 
tions of one's fathers, and yet to be 
children of the devIL 

AD this led up to their sharp re- 
buke in verse S7, w^eh denied to 
Chrtii anything but an earthly ex- 
istence and which led Him to the 
statemeht of His eternity. He iden- 
tifled Himself definitely and clearly 
with the Eternal One— the great I 
AM of Exodus 3:14. 

Christ is God, and is ttierefoi« 
"infinite, eternal, and unchangeable 
In His l>eing, wisdom, power, holli 
nesa, Justice, goodness and tnitii"

Stocked Cellars 
Eliminate Worry. 

A Blown Fuse Should Be Replaced Only 
With a New Fuse of Correct Size 

The fuses on yout electric circuits pro- 
tect you from the hazards of fire. When 
a "short" or overload causes more elec- 
tricity to flow through a circuit than it 
can carry safely, a right-size fuse will 
burn-out or "blow," preventing the wir- 
ing from overheating and protecting elec- 
trical equipment from further damage. 

For maximum protection, blown fuses 
should be replaced only with new fuses 
of correct size. (15 amperes is right for 
most household branch circuits.) Never 

put a penny behind a fuse or use other 
makeshifts and never use a fuse of too 
large an amperage. To do so is to invite 
danger and costly damage. 

It's a good idea to keep extra fuses of 
right size on hand and to learn how t* 
use them, if you do not already know 
how.* Then you can restore service 
quickly without waiting for a service- 
man. And you'll be helping to save 
precious rubber by eliminating a trip by 
a service truck. > 

Rationing of canned foods is 
not worring homemakers in Ken- 
tucky who Ijave well stocked

meetings of homemakers' clubs in 
Boone county, where Mrs. Mary 
Scott Moore is home agent, memus 
using home-grown canned and 
stored foods were prepared. One 
such menu consisted of hot tomato 
juice served with whole wheat 
sticks, chicken pie made with a 
combination of chicken and 
canned vegetables topped with a 
whole wheat crust, raw carrot 
curls and turnip wheels for finger 
salads, and a dessert of bakad 
spiced pears and cookies made 
with syrup instead of sugar.

Blown fuses are usually 
caused by damaged or loose-

appliances or circuits over-

Farmers Prepare to Produce 
All the Food Needed. 

Better management and the use 
of more machinery will enable 
Kentucky farmers to make all the 
increases in production wanted 
this year, says Dr. Roy E. Proctor 
of the state College of Agriculture 
and Home Economics. 

Farmers are making careful 
plans, says Dr. Proctor. They are 
planning their crops and their 
livestock production so as to make 
the best use of feeds and labor. 

Dr. Proctor stresses better use 
of machinery. In many neighbor- 
hods there is a sufficient supply of 
3quipment. if it is fully used, he 
thinks. It may be necessary for 
many farmers to rent machinery, 
)r hire its owners to use it to 
eed, cultivate or harvest crops. 
In other cases, equipment will be 
exchanged, or labor traded for 

M-any farmers _^ will use more 

horses and mules this season, ui 

uder to use larger machinery. 

practical short-cuts wilF be de- 

filoped and labor-saving devices 


Where more livestock can be 

handled, it is suggested that it 

may be found on near-by farm.-:, 

vvhere neighbors have more stock 

han they can care for. 

Farmers ai'e doing inuch .solid 

:hinkinsr and planning this winter, 

Dr. Proctor has found. They want 

to produce all they possibley can 

help win the war, and to make 

noney with which to buy bonds, 

;.iy debts and build up reserves for 

a rainy day.

THE STORT 80 FAR: Ann Le* aad 

Cola Cody, beneBclarles under two wiUa 
mad* by Early SIU Cole of the Klnt Col* 
Ranch, arrived simultaneously at tb* 
Ranch to b* creeted by Ranee Waldron. 
Banc*, posing as Old Bill's nephew and 
only relatlT*, made tt avldent they wer* 
not welcome at the Ranch. Eack was 
determhied to stay, however. Later, 
daring an argnment, Ann accldentaDjr' 
sbot Cole. It was then they discovered 
Old Early Bill had made two' Identical 
wills, ene leaving all his money and the 
King Cole. Ranch to Ann; and th» other 
giving the same money and property to 
Cole. However, before bis death Old BID 
had sent them each a key to a box. 
Now continue with the story. 


Two old porch-sitters from Bald 
Eagle came skallyhooting otit'to the 
King Cola Ranch. They ihared 
what they agreed to call a htinch. 
Likewise, both were scorching with 
curiosity. Having talked spaciously 
of the two newcomers, a pretty girl 
by name of Ann Lee and of a lean, 
long individual name of Cole Cody 
who had brought the stage in. hav- 
ing discussed these two at ftill length 
— Queerly, they didn't even mention 
Aunt Jenifer to each other, though 
both had taken full (>ognizance of 
her— they were impelled to travel 
out ta the ranch at an unearthly 
hour, to take stock of conditions 

They arrived early, just in time to 
see four people gathered about ■ 
table with an old black Iron box 
centering their attention. 

"Aha!" the two old porch-sitteri 
■aid iimultaneously within them- 
■elvei, and came barging in. 

Ann emitted a small, shrill squeal 
of delight.' 

"Doctor Joe! Oh, Doctor Joe, I'm 
so glad and grateful you camel Tm 
amongst enemies, cruel, horrid men 
that would steal a girl's last penny. 
You come watch, Doctor Joal" 

And Cole Cody, seeing the Judge, 
(aid a warm, 

"Howdy, Judge. Come guard my 
Interests, won't you? They're not 
only shooting me up, they're trying 
to steal my mess of pottage. Keep 
the eye peeled, will you Judge? And 
m buy the drinks." 

They got the box open. And. iU 
credit to little Ann Lee and soma 
■mall credit to Cole Cody, they 
didn't grab. Their eyes, though, did 

They saw, first of all, two long, 
■ealed envelopes. 

"Well, Mr. Cody," said Ann. and 
looked and sounded very brave, "the 
top envelope is addressed to WiUiam 
Cole Cody. If you care to lift it out, 
X'U take mine!" 

Underneath was tht one addressed 
to her. She snatched it, ran her 
excited eyes over it, flaunted It in 
his face. Then she tore it open aa 
fast as any envelope was ever 
opened in all the world, from the 
time of Rameses, if they had en- 
velopes then, to this current Anno 
Domino year. Her eyes, racing fast- 
er than light travels, that rapid trav- 
eler, were shining. A glance told 
her the tale, the fairy tale, the story 
that she knew would be there! 'Ta 
Ann Lee I give and bequeath— all 
my belongings — the properties 
known as the King Cole Ranch—" 
and ao forth— 

"Come, hurry. Doctor Joel" she 
cried. "Ydu were right! Look!" 

Cole Cody nailed the Judge with 
his eye. 

"Hey, Judge!" he called cheerily. 
"Step over, wUl you? We maybe are 
going to need arbitration, and I pick 
you for my sponsor! Ten per cent 
of the net proceeds, if any, goes to 
you. How about it? Let's both ride 

"What in the world is this?" ex- 
claimed Ann Lee. She waved a sheet 
of paper; there was a bank note 
pinned to it "Listen! It says: "Lit. 
tie Ann Lee, I sort of kind of liked 
you. You were mighty sweet to ma, 
little Ann; you were like a flower 
and I bet you make^ yourself a lot 
of trouble though, but all live gals do 
■uch! Do me a favor, will you? I 
made a bet with a crazy galoot 
name of Josephus Daniel Dodge, 
generally known far and wide, most- 
ly in low dives and disgraceful 
places, as Doc Joe. I made, the old 
fool a bet, five hundred dollars that 
me, I'd outlive him. And here I am 
as good as dead already! Wouldn't 
that make you mad, lit—' " 

She began to cry, dabbing furioiu- 
ly at her eyes. But she jerked her 
head up and let the tears run as 
they dam well pleased, and kept 
right straight on reading: 

"Wouldn't that make you mad, 
little Ann Lee? Well, it makeft me 
mad, but I lose and I pay. Here'a 
five hundred dollars. Suppose you 
band it over to Doc Joe and tell him 
that anyhow I'll get me my laugh, 
■itting up on a big white cloud with 
nice pink trimmings and playing 
'Home Sweet Home' on my harp, 
while I peek down pretty soon and 
•py on him sizzling down In belli 
Thanks, little Ann— and you keep 
your hair on, and maybe you'll ride 
luckyl Yours, Bill Cole." 

"I'm damned," aaid Colo C9d7 

Ha held up a similar $heet ot pa- 
per, bank note attached. He read, 

"Hi, Bill Cole Cody! Sorry I 
aolssed you; couldn't wait, having 
otttor placea to go. Now look here, 
kid, I sort of Uked you; anyhow 
wo had fun together. So you ro- 
mainber eld times and do ma • 
UndnoMi, same as I'd do you at a 
I made a bat wltb a dirtr 

dog, name of Arthur Henry Pope, 
commonly known in and about Bald 
Eagle as the Judge, five fatmdred 
bucks that I'd outlive him. I just 
■Imply got tired waiting for the old 
fool to die, so, dammit, kid, I lose 
and here's the five hundred, and you 
hand it to the Judge for me, and 
tell him it was fun dying, just that 
that way I could make sUre him and 
me would never, never-no-more 
meet up agsRn — for he's hell-bound 
along of Doc Joe, and me I'm al- 
ways for the High Places! Yeee! On 
handing it to him look out he don't 
Claw your hand off, the money- 
grabbing old coyote. And tell him 
I hope him and Doc Joe, barging 
into town to get drunk together, both 
chokes to death. Lupk, kid. Yours, 
BiU Cole." 

And Bill Cole Cody, no sissy like 
Ann Lee, didn't weep. He blew his 
nose and glared stormily. 

"I — I don't understand," gasped 
Ann. "I never ii; all my .life once 
even laid eyea on Mfi — Mr. Early 

"Me, too," said Cole Cody. "He 
■ays here— It's a funny thing. I 
never knew Bill Cole, never aaw 

The Judge and Doc Joe looked at 
each other. 

"Don't you kids be fooling your- 
selves," Doc Joe, said crustily. "I 
don't mean any^' disrespect to the 
dead — or do I? Come to think about

dog was any nicer than a live one. 
Well, be that as it may, and no dis- 

"I'm Just hoping that some day I'D 
find out who did that for old BIU." 

respect meant, old Early BiU Cole 
was a jackass if ever there was one, 
a no'count rambling wreck of wick- 
edness and sin; the same dirty dog 
he names this here gent, Mr. Ar- 
thur Henry Pope. Just the same be 
wam't no liar. If he says to Miss 
Ann she was sweet to him, then she 
was sweet to him, and somewhere 
be knowed her. If he says to this 
yoimg Cody that they had fun to- 
gether, weU they did. Am I right, 

"Right as rain, Doc," said the 
Judge. "HeU taking old Early BUI 
to the contrary notwithstanding, 
you're right." 

"What's all this about wUls?" said 
Ranee Waldron, as sharp as a new 

"You abut upl" cried Ann Lee. 
"You and your wills! We're talking 
about—" She apun on her heel like a 
smaU whirlwind. "Doc Joe! Here'^ 
your five himdred doUars! Golly! 
Here-^ero'a yoiu: five hundred dol- 
lars. Doc -Joel " 

"Thanking you kindly, Miss," said 
Doc Joe, and took his rightful win- 

"Well," said Cole Cody, "here's 
yours, Judge. Like Early BiU says, 
I'm hoping you and Doc Joe choke 
to death." 

The Judge cleared his throat, ac- 
cepted the bank note, cleared bis 
throat again. Beyond that, being 
both lawyer and banker, he would 
not go. 

/»"But, like I Was saying," Cole 
Cody went on, "having done with 
wishing, here is the tall, straight 
and shining fact of the matter. I've 
got in my hand a legal-looking pa- 
per. It calls itself a wUl, last wiU 
and testament. It gives and be- 
queaths and etcetera, aU his be- 
longings and properties and acces- 
sories—with some to wits and some 
more etceteras — the King Cole 
Ranch thrown in— to a certain gent 
name of WiUiam Cole Cody, which 
is ma! And could you tell me. Judge, 
without straining yourself— whose 
time is' it right now to laugh? To 
laiigh, (ny good friend and counsel- 
lor, like a whole pack of hyenas? 
Mino? You're sure shouting! Haw!" 

Rance Waldron was as ititerested 
as any. Mora interested than the 
others, from the look of him. He 
■aid. speaking amoothly, 

'1 oii^t help you folks out, may- 
b*. My uncle— Mr. WUUam Cole, 
yon know^iras pretty old. Wbaf ■ 

the word for it? Senile? It's my 
thought that he was dying and was 
out ot his bead— what you caU non 
compos mentis— in plain English he 
was as crazy as a bed-bug when he 
wrote those wall-eyed wills. He told 
me— HeU's beUs, he told me fifty 
times that aU he had was going 
to_Jje mine! Now here's Mis? Lee 
aro here's Mr. Cody, both of them 
saying they've got a wiU, giving 
them the whole shooting works! 
That sounds kind of funny, don't it? 
It might pay to see how these wUls 
were dated, and how they were wit- 
nessed and aU that. Whether, may- 
be, they were made while the old 
man w«s dying, and was so clean off 
bis nut that both wUls are worth 
about—" , 

He did a nice job of snapping his 

Cole Cotly laughed. " • 

Ann Lee smUed; it was a tight 
little, sUght Uttle, bright UtUe smUe 
that speUed Trliunph. 

When no one else seemed to have 
anything to say. Aunt Jenifer spoke 
up brightly. 

"Have aU you genUemen had 
breakfast?" she asked. "WUls and 
things, you know, can wait longer 
than appetites." 

Before departing with Doc Joe, 
the Judge had cleared bis throat a 
couple of times and had gone so 
far as to say, 

"Speaking of evictions, seems to 
me as though Cal Roundtree might 
Just possibly be within his rights to 
throw out the whole kit and ca- 
boodle of you. But as to any ol 
the rest of you evicting anyone els* 
— weU, I reckon it would have to be 
like the Irishman playing the fiddle, 
by main strength and awkwardness. 
Better sit in at a poker game and 
play for it." And in haste the Judge 
caught up with Doc Joe, and a cloud 
of dust showed the way the two had 
taken— each with an honestly earned 
five hundred doUairs in his jeans. 
- Old Early BiU's house was big 
enough to acconmiodate a score oi 
people; consequently its present in- 
habitants, Uttle Ann Lee and Aunt 
Jenifer, Cole Cody and Rance Wal- 
dron could aU dweU under the one 
roof without numing into each other 
aU the time, 

Thus for a time the big house was 
divided against itself, and aU was 
outwardly peaceful in an atmosphere 
reeking with watchfulness and sus- 
picion. Rance Waldron was locked 
up in his own quarters, ostensibly 
concerning himself with various pa- 
pers and accounts he had found 
be|re. Ann devoted hours to investi- 
gating the house. 

As for young Cole Cody, be left 
the house as soon as he had atowed 
bis few belongings in his room, and 
went down to the outbtiUdings along 
the creek, by the bam, seeking Cal 

He was sitting on a log that had 
been hauled up to the w(K>dpUe, 
smoking contemplatively, with his 
wreck of a black Stetson puUed 
down over his eyes. His head came 
up with a snap as he heard foot- 

"Mind if I perch alongside you?" 
demanded Cody. "I've just bad a 
long walk and am sort of leg- 

"Squat," said Cal Roundtree. 
Cody lowered himself to the log and 
reached for bis own papers and 
muslin bag of fine-flaked tobacco, 
Roundtree eyeing him narrowly aU 
the while. "What's on your mind, 
Cody?" he asked blunUy. 

"Plenty," Cole Cody told him, and 
licked his cigarette and Ughted it 
"I think I own this outfit now; I'nfj* 
not siure of anything. That girl up 
at the house—" 

"She's the prettiest specimen ot 
the girl species I ever clapped eyes 
on, and in my time I've seen some 
of 'em cute enough to take prizes. 
And she's got as much spimk as 
anybody needs, with maybe a mite 
extra thrown in." 

"She's not bad looking, that's a 
fact" agreed Cody without enthusi- 
asm. "As for spunk, she's got as 
much temper as you'd find in two 
wild cats with their taUs tied to- 
gether. What I yras going to say, 
here's a funny tnix-up: I think I 
own the place and she thinks she 
owns it On top of aU that there's 
that Rance -Waldron fellow who puts 
in his claim." 

"You see," Cole Cody continued, 
"I never knew Early BiU Cole. Oi 
U I did know him, as Doc Joe and 
the Judge seem to be sure of, then 
I didn't know I knew him. Maybe 
that's hard to get but that's the 
only way I can put it" 

"He was a queer old rooster," said 
Cal Ro^dtree. "I guess I knew 
bim about as well as anybody ever 
did; I worked for him for aixteea 
years, and out on the range we 
slept together more than cmce, and 
we et together and got mad at one

finest man that ever walked in a 
pair of boots or forked a horse or 
got drunk or played cards > or gave 
his money with both hands to folks 
that WM in want, and he tlidn't ask 
any questions about their pedigree. 
Yep, I knew old Early BiU" as well

Valentine Notes 

Along about this time, even though 
it isn't spring, there's a note of pre- 
cious sentiment 
that gets into the 
atmosphere. Per- 
haps it's those 
bits of bright red 
and lacy pfiper 
the children have 
been pasting into 
heart shapes, the rhymes they've 
been making. Yes! Valentines! 

Cupid has a way of darting into 
this season and winning us over — 
even if only with a cardboard ar- 
row springing out of a froth of red 
and white paper cutouts of hearts. 
Why not plan to give yourself up to 
a party with a Valentine theme? 

Let's make it simple but festive 
for even simple gayety wiU do loads 
for your naorale. Except for the 
cake in today's column which is a 
wee bit party-ish, the rest of ingre- 
dients in the party are streamlined 
to save your time. 

Our color scheme for the holiday 
nms into red-and-white, so our main 
dish is going to be a variation of 
the old favorite chicken and cran- 

*JeUled Chicken and Cranberry Loaf. 
(Serves 6) 

1 tablespoMi gelatin 

2 cups weU seasoned chicken brotb 
6 small thin aUces chicken 
2 cops mlnoed chicken 
Cranberry mixture 

Soften gelathi in a Uttle broth, 
add remaining broth and heat un- 
til gelatin is dis- 
solved. Pour a Ut- 
tle into the bot- 
tom of an oiled 
1-quart loaf pan. 
Divide remaining 
gelatin between 1 
cup dark and 1 
cup Ught meaty of 

chicken. Ad* alternating layers of 
chicken atid cranberry, chiUing each 
layer thoroughly until set before 
adding the next. 

Cranberry Mixture. 
(For Chicken Loaf) 
1 pint cranberry Juice 
VA tablespoons gelatin 
H teaspoon salt 
Dash of cayeimer 
Juice of % lemon 
1 cup minced celery 
Soften gelatin in a Uttle cranberry 
sauce; dissolve over hot water. Add 
remaining juice and seasonings. Cool 
and add celery. 

Since the main (Ush is a combina- 
tion salad and main dish— if served 
with a lettuce or watercress gar- 
nish and mayonnaise if you want it 
balance the menu with some attrac- 
tive assorted sandwiches. Sand- 
wiches shotild be Ught snacks for 
this ^pe of party, so we'U faU back 
on the old standby, cream cheese. 
Cream Cheese Rolls. 
Mix 1 package of softened cream 
cheese with 1 tablespoon of mayon- 
naise and a dash of Worcestershire 
sauce. Blend thoroughly. Take thinly 

Lynn. Says: 

The Score Card: It looks vefy 
much as though you wiU cook 
what you can find with more 
foods annoimced as to become ra- 
tioned. Canned and frozen foods 
along with meats wiU be less 
easUy available. 

Fresh fruits and vegetables are 
to be tinratloned so keep your 
budgetwise and marketwise eyes 
cocked for bargains. Tiunips, 
carrots, beets, citrus fniits and 
apples wiU appeal to wise menu 

Caimed soups which you obtaid 
and pay mor^ for now are nsu- 
ally more concentrated and you 
can get more food value from 
them. You'U like using dehydrat- 
ed soups, too, the chicken-noodle 
combinations being winners. 

Plan to pack whole wheat flours 
and dehydrated pancake mixes 
into your shopping bags. Tbe for- 
mer wlU belp you get vitamin B 
in the diet, whUe the latter is a 
fine time-saver.

The Hall of F'ame 

Baseball's Hall of Fame has come 
to a rather abrupt pause lately. But 
as long as this institution looks back 
to the past, minus any use of oil or 
rubber, apart from any priorities, 
there is no reason now why it 
shouldn't be brought back to life. 

My friend Bob Stedler, a veteran 
from the Buffalo Evening News, ■ 
sporting writer who 
knows what It is all 
about, has brought 
out the best new 
nomination in sight. 

The name is Jim- 
my Collins, In my 
mind the greatest 
artist that ever 
()Iayed ' third base, 
one of the top in- 
fleld artista of all 
time. Jimmy Col- 
lins, starring fof 19 OrMtUndaic^ 
years, was in" many 
ways the greatest ballplayer Beaton 
ever knew. 

Colliat had speed, imarteeM, 
grace. He rcTolatlonlsed the art ef 
playing third base. 

As Bob Stedler writes— "He was 
the first third basenum to break up 
the deadly bunting attack of Mc- 
Graw, Keeler and Jennings from the 
old Baltimore Orioles." 

I happen to know what McGraw, 
Keeler and Jennings thought of Col- 
lins. In their minds there was no 
one else even close. 

Great Third Basemen 

In the last 40 or more years, I've 
seen many great third basemen 
come and go. 

In this list I can give yon Jimmy 
Collhis, Art DevUn, Back Weaver. 
BiU Bradley, Frank Baker, Pie 
Traynor and a few others. 

Pie Traynor was one of the great- 
est. Pie was the leading offensive 
star. And Pie, with 
Bradley, Devlin and 
others, could play 
third base. But Col- 
lins was the fastest 
and most graceful 
of them all. Jimmy 
Collins was to third 
base what Hal 
Chase was to first — 
and Iiarry Lajoie to 

Jimmy made all 
the hard plays look 
easy and simple. 
On the offensive side, Collins bat- 
ted well over .300 with the dead ball 
for six years. • 

On the defensive side, he was the 
fielding champion of both the Na- 
tional and American leagues. 

As the late Jack Doyle told me 
shortly before hia death— "I have 
seen them all for nearly 50 years. 
There was only one Jimmy Collins. 
He was the top and the true artist." 

Farmers' Problems 
Now Exceed Others* 

He Must Supervise 
His Three Main Jobs 

The farmer's problems In this war 
are much more difficult than those 
of most other people, says Roy E. 
Moser, extension economist of the 
Massachusetts State college exten- 
sion service. This is due mainly to 
the fact that the farmer must finance 
both his Job and his home at the 
same time. The majority of people 
work for someone else and their jobs 
are financed for them. On the other 
hand, the farmer's opportunities to

ing though tfullj^ at the aspen trees 
he would have to cut to complete 
his store of food for the winter. All, 
those near the edge of his pond 
had been cut. The others were scat- 
tered about some little distance 
Bway. "I don't know." said Paddy 
out loud, "I don't know." 

"What don't you know?" asked 
Sammy Jay, who, now, that he and 
Paddy had become friends, was 
very much interested In what Paddy 
was doing. 

"Why," replied Paddy, "I don't 
know just how I am going to get 
those trees. You see now that Old 
Man Coyote Is watching for me it 
isn't safe for me to go very far from 
my pond. I suppose I could dig a 
canal up to some of the nearest trees 
and then float them down to the 
pond, but it is hard to work and 
keep sharp watch for enemies at the 
same time. I guess I'll have to be 
content with some of these alders 
growing close to the water, but the 
bark of aspens is so much better 
that I— I wish I could get them." 

"What's a canalT" asked Sammy 

"A canalT Why, a canal is a kind 
of ditch In which water can nm," 
replied Paddy. 

Sammy nodded. "I've seen Farm- 
er Brown dig one over on the Green 
Meadows, but It looked like a great 
deal of work. I didn't suppose that 
any one else could do it Do you 
really mean that you can dig a 
canal, Paddy?" 

"Of course, I mean it,'.' replied 
Paddy in a surprised tone of voice. 
"I have helped dig lots of canals. 
You ought to see some of them 
back where I came from." 

"I'd like to," repUed Sammy. "I 
think it is perfectly wonderful I 
don't see how you do it." 

"It's easy enough when you know 
how." replied Paddy. "If I dared 
to I'd show you." 

Sammy had a sudden idea. It 
almost made him gasp. "I tell you 
what, you work and I'll keep watchl"

Mr. Moser outlines three main 
jobs of farmers in the present emet^ 

The farmer's first and most 
important Job Is to make the 
farm produce its maximum of 
essential feeds in aplte of labor 
shortages, lack of machinery, 
and other problems. 

The farmer's second job is to get 
hjs debts in shape by reducing pres- 
ent debts to a safe basis. Moser 
points out that there is no conflict 
between the reduction of debts and 
the war bond program. Income 
paid on debts does not compete with 
the war bond effort. 

His third job is to invest in war 
bonds when debts have been reduced 

completely or to moderate amounts. ,

nomination. Then the old guard be-

Cereal Straws 

"The time is comtag vihen the 
farmer will become the supplier of 
the materials used ta industry." This 
forecast was made by the late Fran- 
cis P. Garvan, first president of the 
Chemical Foundation Inc. 

Cereal straws are a fine example 
of the tadustrial possibilities of farm 
products. For years, they have been 
used ta maktag paper and more re- 
cently ta maktag fiber board. Most 
of the 84 million tons of straw is 
produced ta Kansas, North Dakota, 
Oklahoma, Illtaois, Indiana and 
Ohio. Wheat straw is the most im- 
portant tadustrially and about 575,000 
tons are used for paper and paper 
board each year. Wheat, straw 
yields the best quality product al- 
though some rye and barley straw 
may be combtaed with wheat witli- 
out altertog the quality. One prob- 
lem is that of collecting it econom- 
ically from tadlvldual farms. 

Straw has a long history as a 
paper maktag material betag fb^ 
used ta Germany ta 1783. In the 
United States the first straw paper 
was made ta 1828 by William Ma- 
gaw of Meadville, Pa. The industry 
still conttaues ta this country and 
science has developed several im- 
proved pulping methods to lower 
costo and Improve the product

Moderate but definite improve- 
ments were 'apparent in the food 
situation of the United Ktagdom 
from the sprtag of 1941 to the out- 
break of war to the Pacific, ateord-

"Of course I will," replied Sam-

see it made Sammy feel very proud

"Right away. If you will just take

Sammy didn't wait to hear more. 
He spread his beautiful blue wings 
and started oS over the Green For-

Paddy watched him go with a puz-

funny," thought he, "I thought he 
really meant it, and now off he goes 
without even saytag good-by." 

In a little while back came Sam- 
my all out of breath. "It's all right," 
he panted. "You can go to work

David King, president of Verona 
4-tt Club represented Northern 
Kentucky on W L W's Everybodys 
Farm Hour 4-H Enlistment pro- 
gram last Saiturday at 1:15 P. M. 
David has an excellent 4-H club 
record and did a splendid job on 
the radio program. 

Boone County 4-H Clubs are for 
a record 4-H Victory Project En- 
listment Program this week and 
next. The County Extension 
agents and adult leaders are meet- 
ing with all the boys and girls in 
the schools to assist in organiz- 
ing victory war projects groups. 
Those boys and girK who can not 
carry livestock, crops or home 
projects will be enlisted in the 150 
hour labor in farm or home work 

'4-H Club members are going all 
out in food aJid fiber production 
and home food selection and pre- 
paration and clothing work zn 

The amount of work in the war 
effort our boys and girls betwean 
the ages of 8 and 20 years is great. 
Every parent is urged to cooper- 
ate fully in our boys and girls war 
production progrcun for this year. 


O. D. Perkins Appointed 
Assistant County Agent. 

Mr. O. D. Perkinson of Trimble 
County has been appointed as- 
sistant agent of Boone" county 
effective February 1st. Mr. Perk- 
inson has been herdsman of Wal- 
nut Hall Stock Farm of Lexington 
for the past 16 years. He is a 
graduate of the University of 
Kentucky. He, wife and son, 
Morris moved to Burlington on 
Tuesday afternoon of last week. 

To further encourage maximum 
war production, incentive pay- 
ments are being offered to farmers 
to assist them in producing max- 
ium amounts of essential farm 
crops. The payments being offer- 
ed by the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture will be based on crops 
including soybeans, Irish potatoes, 
sweet potatoes, grain sorghums, 
and dried beans as well as desig- 
nated fresh vegetables for market. 
The designated fresh vegetables 
includ beets, cabbage, carrots, 
green peas, Lima beans, onions, 
snap beans, and tomatoes. The 
amount of payment varies with 
the crop grown. 

"Tlie purpose of this incentive 
payment", explained Mr. M. D. 
Royse, Chairman of the Kentucky 
USDA War Board, "is to encour- 
age farmers to an even greater 
production. Farmers are having 
difficulty in obtaining labor to 
produce the crops needed when 
the cash income from the crops 
will not pay for the labor used in 
planting, growing, and harvesting 
the crops. Wages are higher and 
machinery is less available for the 
production of the needed crops. 
We must produce to the liipit of 
our resources to accomplish the 
joli that is before us. Every 
country the Allies liberate must be 
fed. It is up to the farmers of this 
country to produce that food."

The following list of workers in 
the Victory Book Campaign has 
been announced by Miss Mary 
Bess Cropper, County Chairman. 
The names of Buildings following 
Uie woiiitiio' luunes show Where 
the books will be collected.

Craven, Churcliqs; Hebron-Con- 
stance Road, Mrs. Albert Rogev.i, 
Hebron School; Petersburg, Mrs. 
Justin Dolph, Mrs. Dolph's liome. 

All precincts of the County do 
not yet have tlielr chairmen, be- 
cause so many people are now 
working at other things, but it is 
hoped to have the list completed 
before the end of the week so that 
it may be published in the 
issue of this paper. 

The Campaign has three more 
weeks to run, and due to gas. 
rationing, it may not be possible 
for a house to house canvas to be 
made. However, this is everyone's 
job, and it is up to each one to see 
that all his suitable books are 
turned in to his local chairman. 
The ministers of the County are 
cooperating in the Drive, and they 
may also be contacted when there 
are books to be contributed. 

Many of our boys are in Service 
in isolated places where there are 
no Ubrary facilities except what is 
furnished by the Government, and 
this is yoiu' chance to provide a 
little enjoyment for their leisure 
time. No magazines may be 
accepted and the following is the 
type of books suggested as most 
suitable : Adventure, Aviation 
stories, Historical novels, Humor, 
Mystery, Sports, Western, Gram- 
mars, Mathematics books. Up-to- 
date technical books. Accounting, 
Shorthands, Business and Sales- 
manship, Well illustrated books of 
ail types, Geography, Travel ( of 
the last ten years'), Biography 
and History. 

Be careful in making your 
selection of books to give, so that 
none will have to be discarded 
later. When in doubt, be guided 
by the slogan "The book you 
really want to keep is a good one 
to give." 
Keep 'em Reading.

From the Nazis 

"Where is the place you surren- 

This was a strange question in- 
deed for the once-proud Nazi sol- 
diers before iStalingr ad to be asking 
the Russians, ' but it was what the 
Reds reported their enemies were 
asking as they continued to flock in 
—victims of the relentless Soviet 
drive to free the once-besieged Vol- 
ga city. 

Dispatches described the condi- 
tion of the Nazis as "cold, unshav- 
en, and distraught" But the citi- 
zens of Stalingrad wasted little pity 
on their captives. Too well they 
rememb>ered the long days and 
nights that the Nazis pounded and 
ruined their city with bombs and 

In a single day 16 generals and a 
field marshal (Frederich Faulus, 
chief Nazi army official in the area) 
were surrendered along with hun- 
dreds of other smaller fry. Even 
the German radio admitted that 
these losses at Stalingrad were 
among the most serious bf the en- 
tire war. 

Elsewhere the Russians continued 
to gain ground or at least hold their 
recent gains. In the Leningrad sec- 
tor the "escape corridor" before the 
city was widened and in the Cauca- 
sus the drive for Rostov strength- 
ened as new thrusts on the middle 
sector headed fresh for Kursk and 

the greatest air-sea battle of the Pa- 
cific to date. 

Exaggerated Japanese claims of 
United States losses were spiked 
early by a navy spokesman, who 
added that "increased activity on the 
I part of the Japanese indicates a ma- 
jor effort to regain control of the 
entire Solomons area." 

One communique, making no ref- 
erence to the Jap assault, said ah 
American destroyer had shelled a 
number of barges at enemy-held 
Cape Esperance, on the northern tip 
of Guadalcanal. Those barges might 
have been used in new landings or 
in coastal troop movements by a 
desperate enemy. 

A week before the outbreak of the 
battle Navy Secretary Frank Knox 
described the American hold on 
Guadalcanal as secure, predicting 
that the remnants of organized Jap 
resistance would be wiped out in 30 
days. The UnitAd. Nations were 
hopeful but not all were convinced. 

Treasury Style 

Flatly opposing the Ruml plan to 
skip payment of last year's income 
tax, the U. S. treasury department 
has nevertheless come out in favor 
of the enactment of a pay-as-you-go

It happened as the Princess Mar- 
tha was returning by clipper from 
England to her home in Maryland. 
The stewardess on the plane asked 
if she were a member of the club, 
which requires every member to 
carry a marked $1 bill as a certifl- 
cate of membership. She was not. 
Whereupon other passengers prompt- 
ly presented their dollar biUs— token 
of membership in the club— for the 
princess to sign. 

She wrote her name in ink. "Mar- 
tha, Crown Princess of Norway," 
across a dozen dollar bills that day, 
as the plane soared over the Atlan- 
tic. 'There were 14 passengers, and 
she signed for all except her lady- 
in-waiting, Ragni Ostgaard. 

The plane had been some time out 
of England before the passengers 
realized they had a princess aboard. 
She appeared on the passenger list 
simply as "Mrs. Brown." But some- 
one recognized her from pictures, 
and the word got arouhd. 

While most of the passengers 
played bridge, the princess read a 
book. At night she tucked herself 
into the little sleeping compartment, 
lower berth, while the lady-in-wait- 
ing climbed into the upper. 

She chatted with passengers as If

the 19 per cent withholding tax would 
be equivalent to the 1942 6 per cent 
normal tax and 13 per cent surtax 
on the first bracket, and would sim- 
plify collection and unnecessary re-

meant the first $2,000 of taxable in-

When friends asked Brig. Gen. 
Patrick J. Hurley, Just back from 
Russia, to explain the Marshal Timo- 
shenko's mysterious disappearance 
from the limelight Hurley dodged 
the question as follows: 

Timoshenko is the George Wash- 
ington of Russia. Washington re- 
treated all the way from Boston to 
Yorktown. He lost one battle after 
another, but he figured that as long 
as he had his army intact and the 
vast reaches of North America to 
retreat into, he might lose the bat- 
tles but he would win the war. 

And he kept on retreating until he 
was able to spring the trap on Com- 1 
wallls at Yorktown. 

Timoshenko also followed the re- 
treat strategy— from Kharkov to 
Rostov to Stalingrad— but kept his 
army intact. He is a tremendous 
figure in Russia^ His name is 
stamped on the hearts of the people. 
(Editor's Not«: Marshal Timoshenko 
is now on the northern Leningrad front, 
it has been disclosed. A letter to Stalin 
from commanders on that front was 
headed by Timoshgnko's name).

Thus far, however, Colombia is the 
only country on the South American

When I was in Berlin covering the

about Germany's counter-blockade, 
how the Nazis could fill seas with

of the great numbers wliich could 
be produced by the American meth-

those statements. Then & the 
months that followed, not much was 
said about the U-boats. For a pe- 
riod when they were operating on

of their presence but , when they 
were driven out of sight of our 
shores, they were driven out of mind 
as well.

German Advance* 
in Synthetic Gtu 

We know that Germany has made 
remarkable advances in the manu- 
facture of syntheUc gasoline and 
oils. We know that some oU has 
been retrieved from the Maikop oU 
flelds in Russia, new ones developed 
in Austria. 

If Germany is not yet starved of 
gasoUne and lubricants, if the Luft- 
waffe has not reaUy disappeared 
from the earth, its absence from the 
air may have another meaning. Wo 
know that in spite of the heavy Ger- 
man losses in men and material in 
Russia, Germany stUl has a large 
and powerful army. Possibly over 
300 fully equipped divisions— trained 

It Is estimated that aside from 
soldiers engaged In Russia and 
North Africa, the garrisons in tiie 
occupied countries, there must be a 
striking mobile army of a million 
men and more. Of course, these 
are estimates but they are not over- 
estimates. And besides this army 
there is the "vanished Luftwaffe.** 
The assumption is that this great 
army like the airforce is resting, 
conserving and building up its 
strength for one of two things: ei- 
ther a long, last stand defense of 
the borders of the Reich or 
more powerful offensive. 

Meanwliile, we know that every 
day that Japan is allowed to occupy 
the riph possessions of her stolen 
empire, she is nearer to the ex- 
ploitation of their resources, the de- 
velopment of which WiU make her 
stronger. And every day she is left 
undisturbed by a major attack, she 
to able to increase her fortifications, 
wear down the Chinese and spread 
her "silver bullets" among the less 
loyal war-lord followers on the 
fringe of Chiang Kai-shek's central 

There are two factors which make 
the road ahead a hard one— the pres- 
ent successful operation and the 
rapid replacement of the German 
submarine flotilla and the probabili- 
ty that Germany to holding back a 
powerful army and air force either 
for another telling blow or to de- 
fend its strongly forUfied terrain.

Of course to North Africa— it may

dish and dessert, and have company 
with it besidesi 

It's beari-wartning to visit, too, 
and have someone to help with the 
meal if your once-big family is 
somewhat reduced. Most people wel- 
come a visit now' and then with Just 
one of the ordinary meals— and pot- 
hick is the perfect answer. 

Your first must-not with pot-luck 
is do not fnss. Just get together on 
who Is to bring what— and have what 
you ordinarily would have. Your 
plans need not be made with cam- 
paign-like precision, simply do It on 
the spur of ths moment, since this 
makes for spontaneity.

LESSON TEXT— John 9:18-38. 

GOUDEN TEXT— •■One thing I know, 
that, whereas I was blind, now I see."— 
John S:2S. 

The love of Christ Is seen in its 
full beauty against the backgroiuid 
of man's hatred and unbelief. Last 
week we saw Him coming away from 
the stones with which his enemies 
sought to kill him. As He passed by 
He had the time and the compas- 
sion to stop and help a man who 
had been born blind. His disciples, 
afflicted in some degree with the 
speculative tendencies of their time, 
saw in this blighted life only an il- 
lustration of a theological theory 
about sin. 

But Jesus, by a loving and 
gracious act, stirred in the heart of 
the man that faith which caused 
him to obey— to go, to wash, and to 
see (v. 7). The enemies of Christ 
were not willing to believe even 
what they now saw to be true. Their 
stubborn unbelief shut the door to 
blessing for them, but the blind 
man received three things by faith: 

I. HeaUng (vv. 18-23). 

The argument with the man's par- 
ents hinged on one point— he had 
been healed of his blindness. The 
parents were unwilling to risk ex- 
communication by discussing the 
matter, but they did know that he 
had been blind and now could see. 
That was clear. 

An experience like that is impos- 
sible to deny. The healing of the 
soul of man in regengration Is also 
a stubborn fact which deniers of 
God's Word and God's grace are 
unable to meet and overcome. The 
one who was blind and now could 
see had no questions about the deity 
of Christ and His saving power. 
What is more, he was not afraid to 
testify. He could "speak for him- 
self" (V. 21). 

Note the difference between the 
three classes here: Blind and stub- 
born unbelief *(v. 18), faith too fear- 
ful to speak (v. 22), and the assured 
faith of the one healed. That is our 
next point. 

n. Assurance (w. 24-34). 

The appeal of the Jews in verse 
24 based on their statement: "We 
know that this man is a sinner," 
reminds us that there is no knowl- 
edge so absolute (and so absolutely 
wrong) as that of ignorance backed 
by self-conceit 

They said they knew, but did not 
The, man had comple'te assurance 
by faith and by experience. He did 
not argue (v. 24), he simply restated 
his healing. "I was blind— now I 
see." When they evaded that reply 
(for they dared not meet it), he 
thrust deep with the convicting fact 
that God does not perform His mira 
cles in response to the prayers of a 
wicked man. That was too much 
for them, and they cast him out. 

Even as the stupidity and stub- 
bom willful unbelief of our Lord's 
enemies grew step by step, so also 
did the healed man's assurance grow 
as he testified. First he called the 
Lord "a man called Jesus" (v, 
11); then "a prophet" (v. 17), and 
then at last, "the Son of God" (w. 

Standing true to Christ and speak, 
ing for Him means growth in faith, 
in knowledge and in grace. It may 
mean persecution and even exclu- 
sion, but remember that when the 
man was cast out by the haters of 
Christ, he met Christ. "His excom. 
mimication was a promotion. He 
went from the synagogue to the 
Saviour" (Scroggie). And that is 
our third point. 

Ul. FeUowshlp (w. 35-38). 

He did not know Jesus. He had 
heard His voice, but he was blind 
then and had not seen Him. He 
probably did not know where to find 
Him. Then, too. he was now an 
outcast under the disfavor of the 
authorities, and even his friends 
would fear to be seen with him. 

But Jesus sought him. Ah, that's 
the glorious difference between our 
Lord and those who look at the out- 
ward appearance of things. He went 
to fhid the man who now needed 
fellowship. Instruction and encour' 

He had sought the man out to heal 
him, now He sought him agahi to 
help him sph^tually. We need to 
learn of our Lord that we are not 
to wait imtU the sin and suffering 
of men force themselves upon oiu: 
attention and force us to do some- 
thing. We are to go out into the 
highways and the hedges and urge 
siimers to come to Christ We have 
failed in this. We have built churches 
and expected the people to come. 
Instead of going where the people 
are, and bringing them the gospeL 
The war is teaching us some lessons 
in that connection, but we are none 
too ^uick to learn and to act 

There is a beautiful touch in verse 
S7. Dr. Maclaren points out that 
when speaking to the woman of 
Samaria, Jesus said: "I that speak 
unto thee am he," but to the man 
who had just begun to see He said: 
"Thou hast both seen him, and it is 
he that speaketh to thee." Tbe Christ 
who gave sight, now gives Himself 
te be seen.

U may happen at night, so it pays to 
be prepared. 

You can save yourself annoyance from 
"home-made blackouts" by keeping.

to use them. Then you can restore 
service quickly without waiting for a 
serviceman, who may be delayed in 
answering calls because of wartime re-

Be sure to buy only fuses of rarrect size 
(15 amperes is right for most house- 
hold branch circuits) and keep them 
handy where you can find them when 
you need them. Better stock up now 
as the scarcity of metals may limit the

For all Intoxicating Liquors. Year ending June 30, 1942. 

28,658,696 gallons consumed - 10.05 gallons per capita 
$66,696,905.75 spent by the drinkers - $23.43 per capita 

Total whiskey consumption tax for the year was $2,^06,746.05. Dividing this sum by $1.20, the 
state tax per gallon, we have 2,422,288 gallons. .85 of a gallon or 3.4 guarts per capita for the 
state's 2,845,627 people. . ^ 

Taking an average retail price of $3.50 per quart, Kentucky's drinkers spent a total of $33,912,032.- 
00. for the 9,689,152 quarts of whiskey consumed. Doubtless, if all the sales per glass at 15c to 40c 
and fancy drinks could be figured, the total amount v^^ouH be much higher. 

The above does not take illicit or moonshine liquor into consideration. Authorities place this as high 
as 50 /f of all liquor consumed. Two years before Harlan county voted dry, an investigation by 
George T. Stewart of the State Alcoholic Control Board, revealed that 65% of all liquor sold there 
was illicit liquor. Before Caldwell county voted dry, police records in Princeton revealed that out of 
60 men convicted for drunkenness in two months, 58 had gotton drunk on moonshine and only two 
on legal liquor. 

The 3.4 quarts per capita consumed in thekyear ending June 30, 1942 showed a decrezise compared 
with the 3.7 quarts for the year ending June 30, 1938. However, the consumption tax in 1938 
was $1.04 compared with $1.20 in 1942. The state's population w,as 2,614,589 in 1938 compared 
with 2,845,627 in 1942. Thirty-two counties were dry during the year ending June 30, 1938 com- 
pared with 52, with a total dry population of, 850, 540 the year ending June 30, 1942. 

The total beer consumption tax for the year ending June 30, 1942 was $1,234,233.28. Dividing this 
sum by $1 .50, the state tax per barrel of 31 gallons we have 822,849 barrels, totaling 25,508,319 
gallons or 102,033,276 quarts. 35.8 quarts or 8.95 gallons per capita for the 2,845,627 people in the 
state. (TTie per capita for 1938 was 7.8 gallons.) 

With one-half of the above gallons of beer sol^from the barrel in 8-oz. glasses at 5c and the other 
half from 1 2-oz. containers at an average price of 1 5c, Kentucky's beer bill last year was $30,600^607.- 
75. Probably more. 

"~^ ■ *► ' 

The total wine consumption tax for the year ending June 30, 1942 was $182,022.35 At 25c, the state 
tax pr gallon, we have. 728,089 gallons or 2,912,356 guarts - .25 of a gallon or 1 quart per capita 
consumption. Averaging 75c per quart, Kentucky's wine bill last year was $2,184,266.00 

If illicit liquor was figured in, it is generally conceded that Kentucky's liquor bill would be nearer 
$30.00 for every man, woman and child. ,J 

Kentucky's 1 0.05 gallons! per capita consumption of all intoxicating liquors is one of the lowest in the 
Union and considerably below the National average of over 1 4 gallons per capita. This is doubtless, 
due to the constantly increasing dry territory. 


For this staggering sum of $66,696,905.75 squandered for poison slop, the state received $9,1 57,255.- 
20 as her share of the tainted boodle. Cities, villages and counties paid out uncounted millions to 
take Qare of the drunks, paupers, criminals and insane. Other millions were worse than wasted 
through wrcks caused by drunken driversV Thousands of homes were broken, causing untold misery 
and suffering. Vive and disease multiplied. Repa tations, character, and lives blasted and thousernds 
of otTr best youth made drunkards. For all this tra gic wreckage the lawrdefying liquor outfit got the 
money, the public die headache, and the 1»X|»3^9 Ae biU^^ just plum crazy.?

THB STORY SO 'FAH: Arrivlnf ilmol- 
laneonily at th« King Col* Ranch, Ana 
Lea aad Col* Co4r' dlieovered Old Early 
BUI Cole had mad* two Identical wtlla, 
•n* leavlnt an hla money and th* King 
Col* Ranch to Ann; and the other (Ivtng 
th* lam* money and property to Cole. 
Bowever, before Ui death, canted by » 
(Wi-ihot woond from an imknown aiiatt- 
ant. Old BUI had lent them each a key, 
which, to tbeir amazement, they now 
found fitted two different locki on an old, 
black iron box. OpeBlng th* box they 
fonxd two envelopei, «*ch containing a 
■ve-huadred-doUar bUI and a l*tt*r dl- 
r*cting payment of the money to Doc Jo* 
and the Judg* In (etQement of a lost bet. 

Now continue with the ftory. 


Cal Roundtree told the story ol 
Early Bill Cole very simply. 
Cole Cody asked, 

"When he came to making a will, 
then, he knew what he was doing? 
He wasn't delirious?" 

"Not Early. Bill." vowed Cal 
Roundtree. "When he stood up, 
aiming to die on his feet the same 
way he had lived, his old head was 
as clear as a bell. You could see it 
In his eyes. He had a pair of eyes 
like an eagle's." 

"Then how In blazes was it that 
■t one and the same time be gave 
all he had to me— and gave the 
aame everything to Ann Lee? I've 
Been both wills, man, and that's 
how they read!" 

Cal shook his head. "He was hav> 
Ing him his fun, I reckon. Old Eai^ 
ly Bill, come rain or shine, was al- 
ways a great hand for having him 
his own fun in his own way." He 
thought a moment. "Sayl It might 
be that this way he was making 
aure that )rou and Miss Ann would 
marry each other! Maybe that's the 
way he wanted it!" . 

"Then you're wrong about him not 
being crazy," snorted Cole Cody. 

Thej sat sUent a little while, soak- 
ing in the sunsliine. Presently they 
fell to talking of this and that as 
men, strangers to each other and 
thrown together, will, and so it 
chanced that the attempted stage 
robbery of the day before was men- 
tioned. And so Cal Roundtree 
learned that the attack had been 
made against Bucktooth Jenkins, 
and that Jenkins Was now lying in 
bed at Bald Eagle, pretty well shot 

"Did they get the money Buck- 
tooth was carrying?" Cal Roundtree 
asked anxiously. 

"They didn't get anything, unless 
one of them got a bullet in him. I 
couldn't be sure, it was that dark. 
We all wondered what Bucktooth 
was carrying that they wanted." 

"He was carrying ten thousand 
dollars in hard and folding money," 
aaid Cal. "It was money he had 
gone to collect for Early Bill, and 
he wai> bringing it home. I know 
because Early Bill showed me the 
letter Bucktooth had wrote him; the 
letter said he had collected all right 
but was staying over a couple of 
days to visit some relations of his 
at the old trading post down over 
by Tilton; (aid he'd be along on 
yesterday's stage, bringing the ten 
thousand bucks with him. But how 
the devil did anybody else find out 
about it? Bucktooth ain't a man to 
gab. Early Bill showed me the let- 
ter because when it come he was 
near blind with pain, and he Just 
snapped at me like this, 'Oh, hell. 
It ain't anything if it's from that 
fool Bucktooth. Just about whether 
he did as I told him or fell down on 
It Here, read it to me, Cal,' and 
he stuck on to that, same as usual. 
If you can read!' So I read it, and 
left It lying on his table when he 
chased me out to bring him a 

"You left it on the table, huh? 
He probably left it on the table. — 
What do you know about this Ranee 
Waldron hombre anyhow?" 

"Nothing. Except I don't like the 
way he wears his face." 

"He could have found the letter 
and acted on it. 

"About it being Waldron, I bet it 
was! He's been in and out of Bald 
Eagle a time or two, and from 
what I hear he ain't got a two-bit 
piece to his name. And I wouldn't 
put him above hog-stealing. But 
where he'd find a side-kick in a 
game like this, him being a Johnny- 
come-lately hereabouts, I wouldn't 

"Just who is Bucktooth Jenldna, 
anyhow? How come that Early Bill 
^ent him on an errand such as 

"Bucktooth has been old Bill's 
bandy-man for years. He lived In 
that little shack over yonder." Cal 
Itointed to one of the several small 
adobes half hidden by the low droop- 
ing branches of a live oak. "He's a 
good man and game, and always 
carried out orders the way ho got 
'em. Later I'll be riding into town 
to see how he's making out If he 
gets well he ought to be back here, 
no matter who owns the place." 

'I'd ftort of like to look the ranch 

over, to see what it's like," said 

^ody wistfully. "But I suppose, the 

ahape I'm in, a horse would shake 

ma plumb to pieces." 

"I'll hitch up the buckboard, if you 
say. the word, Cody. A buckboard 
can go most any place, you know." 

It was while they were giving the 
matter thought that a man came 
tiding to tbem from the country 
road, ignoring the ranch house and 
•trUdng atraigfat tor the two on the 
itg. Tint Cola Cody racogniaad tha 
palomino, then the rider, and waved. 
■ko earn* little Poiitrie LQpai 



The afternoon passed lingeringiy. 
There was so much to think about 
ao little to do about any part of it 
For the most part Colo Cody lay in 
his room, fatigued and weakened by 
his jaunt in the buckboard; Banco 
Waldron kept to his rooms, seldom 
emerging and always, as Aunt Jeni- 
fer took pains to note, leaving a 
locked door behind him. Aunt Jeni- 
fer herself did a bit of snooping all 
over the place but mostly in the 
neighborhoofi of Waldron's quarters. 
As for Ann Lee, she sat in the patio 
more than one reason: He wanted^o dreaming dreams of the future, 

Senor" "th 

whom he had left last night in town. 

Porflrio's white teeth gleamed in 
a wide grin. as he pulled his horse 
up in front of them. 

"Light down, Porflrio," invited 
Cody, "and make yourself at 

Porflrio swung down lightly, was 
introduced to Cal Roundtree who 
shook hands without getting up to do 
so, an unnecessary effort anyhow, 
seated himself beside his amigo Cole 
Cody, and the three chatted. Por- 
flrio had come, it appeared, for 

visit the grave of the poor old Senor 
Beel Cole; he meant to pick some 
wild flowers by the creek and place 
them there with his own two hands. 
Also, he had thought that he might 
find his amigo Cole Cody here. 
Third, his heavy black brows drawn 
down like the shadow of a thunder- 
cloud, he wanted to poke hi; nose 
into things here, to find out things 
for himself, to be like a hunting 
dog, maybe to learn what cabrone 
it was who had shot Early Bill. 

"I would kill him like that!" he 
exclaimed and crushed an acorn 
with the high heel of his boot. 

Cody explained to Cal Roundtree 
all about Porflrio. 

"He sold his little ranch to come 
here. I'd like him to stay a while. 
If I take over, he's on my pay roll 
Anyhow he might hole-up here a 
few days?" 

Cal shrugged. 

'-'Me, not owning the place, I can't 
hire a man," he said. "Likewise, 

"Bun, if that's what you got in 
yonr hearts." 

not owning it I've got no rights 
chasing a man off. As far as I go, 
Porflrio is welcome to stick around 
until his feet itch to be traveling." 

Porflrio smiled. "But I do not 
travel on my feets, Senor!" 

"It's a dam shame," said Cole 
Cody, half smiling and half inclined 
to sigh over the thing, "that the 
old boy can't be with us, watching 
all the litUe merry heU he's kicked 

Cal sat silent a little while, gen- 
tly stirring the dirt with the toe of 
his boot. 

"It's not a day for sitting still." 
said Cody, and stood up. "That's 
a great idea of yours, Cal, about 
the buckboard."' 

"Suits me," said CaL "Here we 

He roped two lively young bays in 
the corral, harness-broke, and aft- 
er a minor tussle with them got tbem 
harnessed and hitched to the buck- 
board while Cody held the reins. 
Cal took the reins into his own hands 
as be olimbed up over the wheel, 
said to his team a quiet "Run, blast 
you, if that's what you've got in your 
hearts," and swung them into the 
sketch of a road leading down into 
the valley. Porflrio Lopez, not to be 
left alone with his thoughts and^ 
problems, rode alongside. ^ 

It was a glorious morning such 
as early summer, still brushing fin- 
gers with springtime, brings to tliis 
land of gentle hills and small val- 
leys under the steep and rugged bar- 
rier of the blue moimtains, and the 
breeze blowing in their faces was 
sweet with the resinous incense of 
pines, the spicy whiff of sage, the 
"green^mell" of rich young grass 
and wUd flowers and the many green 
things growing. 

It Was nearly noon when they re- 
turned to ranch headquarters. Colo 
Cody left Porflrio >ind Cal Round- 
tree taking care of the horses, and 
made his way slowly up to the 
house. He was tired from the trip 
which no doctor would have consent- 
ed to, and his present yearning was 
for a quiet room with a bed in It 
Passing a window he got a glimpse 
of little Ann Lee; their eyes met 
fleetingly and he marked in passing 
that her eyes looked bigger than 
ever and that her face was very se- 
rious. He lifted ills hat and went on 
to his comer of the house; t^e iiad no 
way of telling that she had been 
shocked by the deadly pallor of his 
face, ita haggard, drawn look— and 
by her sUbbinc realization that it 
had been her hand to maka bia Uka 
aUa. If ha should dla— 

inking of the immediate past mus- 
ing about her benefactor. Early Bill. 

Not long after the lamps were lit 
all gathered around the dining ta- 
ble., when Aunt Jenifer rang the hand 
bell for supper. Again the meal 
was excellent and attacked as at 
dinner; again conversation died 
aborning. In fact had it not been 
for Aunt Jenifer's few cheery re- 
marks, there would probably not 
have been so much as a "Please 
pass the potatoes," remark. At the 
end of this feast of silence and flow 
of distrust Cole Cody again said 
some sort of polite thanks and went 
to his rooin. After Cody's depar- 
ture. Ranee Waldron sat a .little 
while over his coffee, smoking a cig- 
arette, and inade some small en- 
deavor to be agreeable. Aunt Jeni- 
fer did not like the man, and made 
him the curtest replies before she 
got up to clear the dishes away; 
Ann Lee seemed absent minded; 
she said, "What did you say?" twice 
to remarks of his; he was not long 
in saying his own good night and 
going to his room. 

Ann .Lee patted a yawn; they 
had been up early, it had been quite 
a day and she was sleepy al- 

"Go to bed. Kitten," said Aunt 
Jenifer. "I'll do the dishes and fol- 
low along in two shakes." 

Ann carried her lamp through 
quiet emp^ rooms wtiere shadows 
seemed to come out of comers and 
from under tables and chairs, and 
scurry away like frightened things. 
In her room it was very still, and 
the starshine came in through the 
iron grilles of her open windows. 
She drew the shades down, un- 
dressed and sUpped into her night- 
gown and into her big bed almost 
with one gesture and passed gently 
from daydreami to the land of night's 

And Aunt Jenifer, as wide awake 
as any cat at any mouse hole, sat 
for a long while on the green bench, 
and her bead was tipped at an angle 
ttiat indicates the head's owner is 
listening intently for the slightest 
sound. Thus an hour passed; and 
the night was stilL At even the 
slightest sound, she started; when 
she heard the faint creak of a board 
within the house, she clutched the 
edges of her bench with both hands, 
ready to spring up. But she Imew 
the way of old houses; how in the 
night for no reason on earth that she 
knew, the ancient floorboards would 
creak like that; sometimes she had 
treated herself to the thrill of 
thinking. "There goes a ghost!" Now 
she Just sat back and continued to 

Long ago little Aim Lee was fast 
asleep, or she would have been out 
here seeking her. Aunt Jenifer 
stole out of her secret place and 
crept like an agile small shadow out 
to one of the big live oaks not 
more than 50 yards from Ranee 
Waldron's outer door. Under the 
thick branched tree, heavy,.^witb 
young foliage, it was black dark; 
here she established herself, seated 
on the ground, leaning back against 
the gnarled trunk. 

At last even Aunt Jenifer began to 
yawn and her eyelids to grow so 
heavy tbAt it required poupds of 
effort and the final exercise of her 
will power to get them Ufted. But 
when at last she heard the sound 
she had waited for so long, her eyes 
flew wide open of their own accord 
and she was as wide awake as a 
child early on Christmas Eve. 

The creaking this time was no 
ghostly creaking; it told of a dooi 
being slowly opened on rusty hinges. 
It was the door from one of Ranee 
Waldron's rooms. And the steps she 
heard were no ghostly tread; two 
men, with the door softly closed and 
locked after them, were coming out 
and one of the men walked scuf- 
fiingly as though he dragged an 
injured leg after him. 

She hid as best she could beliind 
the dark old oak tree, peering out 
to see wliat she could see. Itao 
night was clear and there was light 
enough for her to be aure of two 
tilings: Dae of the men was a stran- 
ger to her, and ha was hurt or 
sick. The other man was helping 
him along, and was Ranee Wal- 
dron. She sniffed. "As though 'he 
could fool me, with someone hid in 
his part of the house. Well, I know 
now it's a man and not soma fool 
girl he's hiding out" 

She strove with all her oari to 
hear what was said between them, 
but they spoke a few words only, 
those in lowered voices. She saw 
them move, one man lurching and 
the other supporting him, toward the 
group of ranch buildings at the foot 
of the slope, and furtively she fol-

TF THERE has been a part of sport 
*■ badly overdone, the prize goes to 
the length given to spring training in 
the major leagues. 

This applies especially to the long 
list of exhibition games played along 
the route back home. 
, If owners and managers don't 
know this, the ballplayers do. Few 
ballplayers facing a 
154-game schedule 
can handle 3S extra 
games without go- 
ing stale. Two 
weeks' training 
should be plenty if 
the ballplayer keeps 
in fairly good condi- 
tion through the 

I've heard several 
dnb owners and 
managers admit 
this, but they feel 
they must string along with the 
others, largely through alleged pub- 
licity values. 

Training at home through a short- 
er period isn't going to hurt the qual- 
ity of play. 

The Case of Ty Cobb 

I asked Ty Cobb one year why be 
had held out so long. "Money had 
nothing to do with if he said. "I 
simply didn't want to wear myself 
out with too much spring training. 
Take my season in 1911. I held out 
that year and finally reported at 
Terre Haute on April 6. This left 
me about ten days to get ready. 
That year I batted .420 and stole 96 
bases. I was still fresh and feeling 
good through the last week, where 
some of the others had gone stale." 

Cobb handled fewer training days 
than any other big-time ballplayer. 

This partly acoonnts for the tact 
that he was able to move at top 
speed for 24 years. 

Cobb kept in condition by hunting 
most of the winter. His legs were 
always ready to give him the trans- 
portation he wanted. 

If Cobb had reported late in Feb- 
ruary or early March, season after 
season, he would have lost at least 
four years trhm bis playkig tim6. 

For Cobb only knew how to play 
the game one way— at top speed. 


Ty Cobb 

I'll admit, Cobb was an exception. 
So was Babe Ruth. One of the all- 
time sporting mar- 
vels is the way Babe 
Ruth carried his 
240 • pound system 
through 20 seasons 
on a brace of slen- 
der ankles. 

Each year you 
had the feeling those 
thin ankle props 
were going to crack 
up, considering the 
fact that Ruth also 
averaged at least 30 
exhibition games 
each year. 

The Babe weighed 253 pounds the 
year he collected his 60 home runs, 
from 15 to 20 pounds over his nor- 
mal displacement. 

"I had enongh left that year to 
hit 'em a little harder," the Babe 
tells yon. And he also feels certain 
he could have added a hnsky batch 
of extra homers if he hadn't been 
called on for so much exhibition 

It has always been my belief tha< 
major league seasons start too early 
and last too long. 

The season should be condensed, 
adding the necessary doubleheaders 
to fiU out ^ ^ 

In Shape 

There is no reason why a ball club 
can't get in good shape in its home 
town in three weeks' time. 

It might not be quite is sharp the 
first week or two, but it will be bet- 
ter off from July on. 

Baseball's main problem this next 
season isn't going to be a matter of 

It is going to be a matter of get- 
ting enough ballplayers to round up 
a squad. 

If this part of the problem can 
be handled, it is more than prob- 
able that both pennant races will be 
closer and better. 

Year after year we've seen the 
American league pennant race over 
by early August 

This means two months of waste 
action so far as general interest in 
the pennant is concerned. It Is like 
playing out the bye-holes in a golf 

National league races have been 
closer, but for the last two seasons 
they have been strictly two-team con- 

This means that 13 out of the 16 
big league clubs might as well be 
selling peanuts after July. 

Closer Race 

There Is a chance under the new 
order that a greater number of 
teams will be better matched and 
that cities outside of New York, 
Brooklyn and St Louis will have a 
chance to look at home clubs that 
are parked witliin reach of the top. . 

At least some of these teama 
won't be 40 and 50 games away 
from the front 

The closeness of the race will brhig 
a new biterest to basebaU— «na that 
la needed.

The blueboimel, official flower of 
Texas, was earlier called buffalo 
clover, wolfflower, and the "rab- 
bit" — "el conejo" — the last because 
of the white tip's resemblance to 
a rabbit's tail. It was given its 
present name because it suggests 
a woman's sunbonnet.

Burlington Home 
Destroyed by Fire 

Pire of an unknown origin 
routed the family of Galen fcelly, 
cashier of the Burlington Bank, 
from his home about 10:30 p. m. 

The blaze which began in the 
attic of the home in the heart of 
Burlington spread with such ra- 
pidity that there was no effort 
made to extinguish it by the Flor- 
ence and Hebron fire departments. 

Loss of the building and its con- 
tents was estimated »t $7,000. The 
home had recently been remodeled 
by Mr. Kelly, with a new heating 
plant,, new bath and new hot- 
water system installed. It was said 
to be one of the finest homes in 
the town. 

Mr. and Mrs. Kelly fled from 
the house clad in their night 
clothes, with only overcoats to 
protect them from the sub-zero 
temperature. James Senour, 
father-in-law of Mr. Kelly, who 
has been a semi-.invalid from a 
stroke, was carried from the home 
by his son-in-law and H. R. Pork- 
ner, Boone County Farm Agent, 
who lives across the street., 

Senour was taken to the home 
of Dr. Harold Keeney, Erlanger, a 
relative, where he is now staying. 
Mr. and Nirs. Kelly went to the 
home of Mrs. Jess Eddins, Bur- 
ington, sister of Mr. Kelly. 

Neighbors succeeded in saving 
some of the furniture on the first 
floor of the home before the roof 
caved in.

1.' Patch the bare sjxjts.

7. Don't guess when buying

what you are buying. Look at both 
sides of the tag.

E. N. Fergus, from the Aionomy 
Department, College of Agriulture

Lcgume»>Needed in Most Pastures 

Most pastures are lacking in 
jegumes. Legumes are necessary 
to build up the nitrogen sypply for 
the good growth of grass. 

Korean lespedeza is a good le- 
gume to seed in most pastures 
where patching and reseeding is 
neded. Where it is seeded for the 
first time on the land, the seed 
should be inoculated. 
Ground Limestone A Phosphate 
The use of ground limestone 
and p"hosphate should be used on 
pasture land where needed. Tlie 
value of lime and phosphate treat- 
ment on pasture land is greater 
than many farmers realize. 
Tests Prove Value 
Tests Conducted by the Experi- 
ment Station in parts of Ken- 
tucky show great increase in the 
yield of pasture where ground 
limestone was used and also lar^e 
increase where phosphate was 
u."=ed. But the increase was more 
where both lime and phosphate 
was used. This is especially true 
on the soils that are acid and 
needed lime and> V>hosphate. See 
your Agricultural Extension Agent 
for leaflet on seeding mixtures for 
improving your grassland and 

You can save feed and labor by 
improving the productivity oif 
your pasture land. Pasture is one 
of the most profitable crops you 
grow on your farm, why not invest 
a little in reseeding this important 
crop, each year. Seed in the spring 
and reseed again in the fall. It is 
an important contribution to the 
feed production on your farm and 
is important in the food product- 
ion program and will contribute 
to the War Effort.

"demands a new sense of steward - 
sihip and consecration of self and 
money on the part of Methodists 
and members of all Christian 
bodies. Laymen's Day provides the 
opportunity to the laymen of our 
church to make their voice heard

Care Required to 
Take SoU Samples 




Frequent notices have been 
given in the press and on the rad- 
io in the past two, or three years 
that soil samples will not be ana- 
lyzed by the Agricultural Experi- 
ment Station at Lexngton imless 
taken according to directions 
furnished by the Experiment Sta. 
and accompained by information 
asked for in the .directions. Not- 
withstanding these notices, many 
samples are received without any 
information whatever £is to how 
tliey were taken, and most of 
them show that they . were not 
properly taken. A sample not pro- 
perly taken may not be repre- 
sentative of the fiel^ or lot, and 
advice given on the basis' of the 
analysis may be erroneous 'and 
expensive for the field or lot as 
a whole.

Labor Looks Upward 

Organized labor's clash with the 
government over wage controls 
drew dlsquietingly closer as the 
American Federation of Labor, the 
CIO and John L. Lewis' United Mine 
Workers made known their stand. 

Conferring at the White House, 
William Green, AFL president, and 
Phillip Murray, CIO cliief, protested 
to President Rposevelt that the cost 
of living was "getting out of bounds" 
and said that there was Increasing 
dissatisfaction among labor's rank 
and file. 

Previously, bushy-browed Lewis 
had announced a demand for a $2 
a day pay increase in the bituminous 
coal industry, effective April 1. 

The impending crisis in wage con- 
trol was further emphasized when 
the War Labor board beset by in- 
creasing demands for pay Increases 
asked Stabilization Director James 
r. Byrnes whether the "LitUe Steel" 
wage ceiling formula should be re- 
vised upward. This yardstick which 
has been applied to numerous indus- 
tries allowed the WLB to grant wage 
increases of IS per cent above the 
levels of January 1, 1941, and was 
designed to match rising living costs 
between that date and May 1, 1942. 

This problem was dropped in Mr. 
Byrnes' lap, because any upward 
wage revision would have consumer 
repercussions and Jeopardize the ad- 
ministration's entire wage stabiliza- 
tioff and price pegging program. 

March 15 Still Deadline 

Neither the Ruml plan to "for- 
give" all taxes on 1942 Income, nor 
the U. S. treasury department's pro- 
posal to double up collections of both 
1942 and 1943 taxes will be adopted, 
members of the house ways and 
means committee definitely indicat- 

One fact appeared certain. Forty- 
four ndllion American taxpayers 
will be compelled to file income tax 
returns by the March 15 deadline, 
on the basis of 1942 Income. 

A pay-as-you-go withholding tax 
procedure will be set up later. Most 
observers predicted July 1 as th« 
date. This apparently would be a 
compromise measure embodying 
some but not all of the Ruml pro- 
posals and the treasury's reconunen- 

Army to Help? 

Many a Washington ofRcial has 
lain awake nights trying to find a 
solution for the critical farm labor 

Latest suggestion for relieving the 
shortage is to apply a method used 
by Union and Confederate armies in 
the Civil war— furlough soldiers with 
farm experience to help with har- 
vests and other seasonal farm jobs. 

Observers believed that creation of 
this farm army would be imdertaken 
Jointly by the war department and 
the War Manpower commlssioh and 
the department of agriculture. It 
was estimated that 500,000 soldiers 
might bo detailed for this needed 

Alternately under consideration by 
top manpower authorities was a pro- 
posal to utilize battalions of army 
men stffl on military assignment for 
faim wdrlc. 

Darkened by Russ 

While the strains of Wagner's fU' 
nereal Gotterdaemmenmg on Berlin 
radios had proclaimed to the Reich 
the melancholy tidings of Nazi dia 
aster at Stalingrad, this requiem 
was regarded by many observers 
as only a prelude to more woeful 
news ahead. 

For it had become increasingly 
clear that the German retreat in 
Russia had long since passed the 
stage of an orderly withdrawal and 
had reached the proportions of a 
rout in many places. Relentlessly 
the Russians had built up their of< 
fensive's momentum, smashing into 
the Ukraine, narrowing the circle 
around Rostov and threatening Hit- 
ler's harassed Caucasus forces with 
a Black sea Dunkirk at Novoros- 

Matter-of-fact Soviet communi- 
ques told the story of German re- 
verses. These included the reoccu- 
pation by Red troops of Zolotukhino, 
only 22 miles above Kursk on the 
Kursk-Orel railroad, thus cutting the 
main Nazi supply line to the north; 
the recapture of Kupyansk and with 
It the control of an entire rail net 
work; and the seizure of Kuschev- 
skaya, below Rostov on the Rostov- 
Baku railway, the biggest system in 
the Caucasus. 
The loss of Kuschevskaya was 
particularly bitter to the Nazis. Russ 
possession of this city which com' 
mands a railroad spur leading to 
the Black sea, threatened to isolate 
huge German forces already under 
attack at Novorossisk, the large 
Nazi-held port on that sea. It had 
been believed Hitler would try to 
use Novorosissk for the evacuation 
of his Caucasian army if Rostov 
were regained by the Russians. 

Nipponese Persistent 

Only occasionally during the lat- 
est air-sea battle between American 
forces and their Jap enemies for 
control of the southern Solomons was 
the curtain of official secrecy raised. 
First American reports were nec' 
essarily noncommittal to keep use- 
ful information from the enemy. 

The Japs used a "reverse Eng- 
lish" technique in reporting the 
battle. This consisted of radio an- 
nouncements telling of overwhelm- 
ing American naval superiority in 
the Guadalcanal area, of the pres- 
ence of 10 American warships and 
10 ahrcraft carriers. By employing 
such fantastic figures, observers be- 
lieved the Jap tiigh command was 
preparing the public back home for 
bad news. 

Heroism Unparalleled 

The heroic part America's 70,000 
merchant seamen have played in the 
front line of combat on the high seas 
was dramatized by a report issued 
by Rear Admiral Emory S. Land of 
the War Shipping administration 
which disclosed that the percentage 
of losses in personnel due to Axis 
U-l)oats and bombers was three 
times as great as that of the U. S. 
armed forces in the first year of the 

Numerically, losses of merchant 
sailors totaled S,200 Including dead 
and missing, or 8.8 per cent of Sie 
total during the war's first year. U. 
8. armed forces' losses were 1 per 
cant in ttiis period. 

'Scrap' Nitrogen 
Now'ls Salvagable 

Its Loss Usually Due 
To Lack of Maiiagenient 

"Scrap" nitrogen, ordinarily wast- 
ed through poor handlinfg of manure 
piles, can be effectively salvaged on 
millions of farms to help take the 
place of chemical nitrogen now be- 
ing extensively used for the manu- 
facture of war explosives. 

While American agriculture will 
receive almost as much nitrogen as 
usual next spring, it will go mostly 
to growers of vegetables, fruits, po- 
tatoes, sugar beets and other crops 
considered of special value to the 

Grantland Bice

Washington, is handling Just a very

war program, according to Paul J. 
Rood, extension specialist, soils de- 
partment, Michigan State college. 

Thus the manure pile takes on 
a new value, for manure is rich 
in nitrogen. Almost two-thirds 
of the total plant food value of 
average farm manure is in the 
nitrogen. Most of the nitrogen 
value, however, is in the liquids 
— usually lost because of lack of 

Surest method of saving this valu- 
able nitrogen supply is to change the 
present methods of manure manage- 
ment on most farms. This means 
stopping the practice of tlirowing the, 
manure out of the bam window or

saving the liquids which are ordinar- 
ily drained off or evaporated. 

One pound of superphosphate 
for each animal each day, placed 
in the cow gutters and in the 
horse stalls is effective in sav- 
ing nitrogen lost by passing into 
the air. In the pen type bam or 
in the cattle and sheep feeding^ 
pens and In the pens of young 
cattle, the same rule should be 
followed— one pound of super- 
phosphate for each animal daily. 

Long experience has proved it will 
pay to apply this superphosphate to 
the manure.

The story of the pine forests of the 
South is a tragedy which Science 
changed into a romance of success. 
In an earlier day, oil, later distilled 
into turpentine, was sapped from 
southern pines by cutting great 
gashes in the bark which permanent- 
ly injured the trees. The scientist, 
Charles Herty, revolutionized the in- 
dustry by showing growers how to 
substitute shallow slashes in the 
bark which would effectively draw 
out the sap without kiUing' the tree. 
As a result, turpentine forests have 
been saved for repeated crops, year 
after year. 

Today, pine oil is being extracted 
from old stumps and being used in 
the textile industry and in the manu- 
facture of perfumes. Camphor is 
being made from turpentine and 
pine oil, replacing oriental camphor 
at lower cost. 

Manufacture of wrapping paper, 
corrugating board and insulation are 
booming industries using four mil- 
lion cords of pine annually. Waste 
sawdust and wood chips are now 
going into plastics.

TF YOU care to intermingle hi 
•*■ sporting arguments today — and 
who doesn't In sport — I can lead you 
to any group of soldiers, sailors, 
marines, airmen, 
coastguardmen and 
merchant seamen, 
and they'll take 
your ears off. 

It has been my 
privilege to be with 
many of these men 
lately — North and 
South, East and 
West— and they all 
want answers, ' di- 
rect answers.' 

This happens to l>e 
the greatest sport- 
ing country this spinning planet has 
ever known, so you can imderstand 
the Interest these idds have in al- 
most anything connected with sports. 
They like to argue about anything. 
At the last gathering they put out 
a tough one — 

"Who are the best straight-power 
men all our games have ever known? 
Just power. Football and baseball- 
boxing especially? Also, golf and 
tennis on the side?" 

If you are wrong, they come back 
at you in a rush — for they know 
their sports. 

A day or two ago they laid down 
a salvo, a fusillade and a barrage 
that had me dizzy, even looldng back 
over 40 years. Just power — raw 
power— never mind the rest of it. 

Heading the List 

You don't get much time to think 
these things over. They come at 
you like a flock of wolves. 

Here are the answers I gave them 
—the eager and healthy, the crippled 
and' the burned: 

Football— Bronko Nagurski — who, 
as Steve Owen once said. Is the only 
back who could run 
his own interfer- 
ence. Even his 
blockers got out of 
the way— 228 pounds 
of fast-moving dyna- 
mite. Power means 
speed and bulk. Na- 
gursld had both. 
Bronko Is the man 
Bernie Bierman of 
Minnesota and Iowa 
Navy picked as his 
top man in football. 
Largely power. 

In his fading years I caught 
Bronko in a shower after some tough 
game— slapped him on the back — 
and almost broke my hand. I might 
sA well have been .socking a hydrant. 

The All-Time Top 

Baseball— Babe Buth. The Babe 
hit over 700 home runs in big-league 
play. On the side he also hit more 
than another batch of home runs in 
exhibitions and World Series. 

The Babe is so far ahead ofau the 
power hitters there is no one even 
close. Lou Gehrig \vas a great pow- ' 
er man. Pound for pound, so is Mel 
Ott. Ted Williams is no punk. 

Boxing — There are only two men 
to consider in this field — Jack Demp- 
sey and Joe Louis. Pound for pound, \ 
they were no better than Ruby Rob- 
ert Fitzsimmons and Sam Langford. 
But I'll still string with Dempsey 
and Louis. 1 

Jim Jeffries was a punishing fight- 
er, but hot a direct killer. Gene , 
Tunney was a box- 
er. Harry Greb was 
a whirlwind, minus 
any killing wallop. 

But when Demp- 
sey and Louis lev- 
eled off, something 
always happened^ in 
a hurry. 

Dempsey had 

greater speed than 

Louis had when the 

Old Mauler was at 

his peak at Toledo 

and before. 

Louis bad more power in both 

hands. For power I'll give you 

Dempsey and Leuis— or Louis and 


To my mind the power man of 
golf has been Jimmy Thomson, with 
Sam Snead close. 

I've seen Thomson carry over 300 
yards too many times. I bear about 
other phenoms who can outdrive 
Thomson. Maybe once in a while. 
Ask the pros. 

The power tennis player— I'll go 
with Bill Tilden. Service er fore- 
hand — Big Bill was the top man. 

I've seen Iiim knock the racquet 
from the hands of stars, blasting 
them off the courts when he felt in 
that mood. 

Maurice McLotighlln had a high- 
power service. But the Califomian 
never had Tilden's aU-around power. 
Nothing like it So here are our 
power men of sport — Nagurski, 
Rudi, Dempsey, Louis. Thomson,

Less Than Two Cents 

Per person is all Boone County will lose in State Liquor Revenue when she 


For Less Than Two Pennies... 

Would you vote to make drunkards of the boys and girls of ; 

Boone County by keeping liquor under their nose every where they go? 

When Boone County Votes dry^ it means a loss of less than 2 

pennies for every man, woman and child in the county in revenue from the state's liquor consumption & license taxes. 



The total whiskey consumption ta3^ received by the state . . .• . 

f'rom all sources, fiscal year ending June 30, 1942, was ........: ...._.. $2,906,746.05 " 

Total State beer consumption tax, same period was • 1,234,273.28 — -— 

Total State win consumption tax, same period was _....,_.. "^2 022.35 

Grand total consumption tax for this period was ^_ .$4,323,041.68 

This total consumption tax of $4,323,041.68 received by the 

State if divided by the 2,839,927 people in Kentucky, would amount to $1.48 for every man, woman and child in 
the State. 

At $ 1 .48 per capita, Boone County's 1 0,8 1 9 population paid > 

into the state's general's fund, for the year ending June 30,, 1942, a total liquor consumption tax of $16.012.1 2 ' 

She sent the State for whiskey license fees , , 800.00 

Her State beer license fees at $25.00 per store were — - 725.00 

Her grand total sent the state for liquor revenue was ..._., $17,537.12 

This $17,537.12 is the sum the state will lose, and NOT Boone 

County when this county votes dry March 6. This county is only one of the 120 counties of the state sharing in the 

general fund. So this county will lose ONLY her 120th part of this $17,537.12, which totals $146.14. This / 

$146.14 is this county's only loss in st^ate revenue, less than 2c per person. 

No Local Revenue Is Lost 

Taxpayers will save thousands of dollars when Boone goes 

^ \ dry March 6th. The smaR license fees charged the beeit and liquor saloons by Boone County, to help pay for 

' the damage the liquor outfit creates NEVER HAS paid for the care and maintenance of the DRUNKS THE 



Will Continue to Receive Her Share of $9,157,255.20 

In Liquor Revenue pouring into the State's general fund from 

7 breweries, 200 wholesale distributors and 4,500 beer and whiskey sallons. A COUNTY VOTING DRY DOES 
NOT DISTURB THIS REVENUE. Dry Boone wiU get her share. 

Boone's Liquor Bill Is $2S39489.17 

Boone County's liquor bill last year was approximately 

$253,489.17. This equals $23.43 for every man, women and child Figure for yourself how much this staggering 
sum would have contributed to the peace and prosperity of the County, had this amount been spent for useful things. 

The Local Liquor Outfit 

.And the Distillers and Brewers of Louisville, Milwaukee, St. Louis, and Chicago are itching to 

keep their hands on this enormous sv|m for thr^e more years. 

TO VOTE DRY, VOTE YES. Give our boys and girls a break!

TWO connoN causes 



Fray«d cords and loose plug connections that permit bare wires to c6me 
together are among the most frequent causes of short circuits that result 
in blown fuses. Here's how you can eliminate them and prevent needless 
interruptions in your electric service. 

imium. iw A^uni^iE 

Clean away the frayed or 
crumbled pare 

Tape up each wire sepa- 
rately, using electrician's 

Then tape wires together. 
Adhesive tape cakes and 
cracks quickly. 


' "'^^lajBKT ^'^^'^*'^. 

Unloosen screws and pull 
wire out. 

Cut oflF frayed part 
of wire. 

Reinsert wire in plug, and 
screw in place.

WRONG: Wires 

not put around the 
prongs first. When 
plug is .pulled, all 
the strain is on the 

RIGHT: Wires put 
around prongs. 
When the cord is 
yanked or jerked, 
pressure is put on 
the prongs. 

BLOWN FUSES naay also be caused by defective or overloaded 
appliances, overloaded circuits or, occasionally, by defective house 
wiring. It's a good idea to keep extra fuses on hapdand to know [ 
how to use them. Then you can restore service Quickly without ■ 
waiting for a serviceman, who may be delayed by war-time re- 
strictions on the use of cars Mid trucks.

Aunt Jenifer went straight to Cole 
Cody's outside door and hammered 
at it hard with her knuckles. He 
was asleep but came awake in- 
stantly, and called out, 
"Who's tiiere? What's wanted?" 
"It's me, Jenifer Edwards. Dress 
quick and come out here. Brins 
year fun, too." 

"WeU?" he demanded wheh he 
■tepped out close to Aunt Jeni- 
fer's shadowy form. 

"I don't know," she said calmly 
If eagerly. "I don't trust that Ranee 
Waldron; he's got a mean eye. All 
day long he has kept his door locked, 
and all day I've known that be bad 
semebody he's been hiding. Fve 
been watching, figuring with aU this 
secrecy he'd be anxious to get his 
friend out of the bouse when he was 
sure everybody was in bed. Just 
MOW he and anotber man sneaked 
•ut and went to their horses that 
were saddled and hidden in a wUlaw 

"What about it?" demanded Cody, 
about as amiable as most men rude- 
ly awakened from a deep sleep all 
for the sake of a mere trifle. "What 
affair is it of mine? Or of yours, 

"Part of it is this: Ranee Wal- 
dron has had this man hid in the 
bouse behind a locked door all day; 
that's a mystery, young man, and I 
don't like mysteries. Then it's shady, 
their sneaking out of the house this 
time of night, speaking in whispers. 
And someone shot Early Bill a few 
days ago; and in case there was 
■o will. Ranee Waldron would have 
Inherited ranch, cash, and every- 
thing. Another thing; the stage was 
held up yesterday by someone who 
knew that Bucktooth Jenkins was 
bringing ten thousand dollars in cash 
to Early Bill Cole. And you fired a 
few shots at the robbers and thought 
you hit one of them. And the man 
with Waldron limped so bad that he 
courd hardly walk. Is that an ear- 
ful, er just child's chatter?" 

"Which way did they ride?" asked 
Cody, grown brisk now. 

"Straight north, along the creek ob 
this side." 

"You'd better get to bed, Aimt 
Jenifer. It's dawning on me that 
you're a pretty wonderful woman, 
but you can't keep going day and 

"You bet I'll go to my room, Bill 
Cole Cody, and lock my door. Dam 
it, I'm scared. And you come back 
as soon as you can; I'll hear you, 
and I'll creep out into the living 
room to make sure it is you. Now 
poke along." 

He - hurried down to the ranch 
buildings for a word with Cal Round- 
tree, .and a horse. , 

Cal, wakened and apprised of the 
■ituttion, was out of the door still 
buttoning his overalls and drawing 
his belt about his lean middle. Cole 
Cedy was ahead of him at the sta- 
ble; they saddled swiftly and took 
the traU Aunt Jenifer had specified, 
north along the creek. 

"If they want to hide they can 
make themselves hard to find in 
this country," said Cal Roundtree. 
"I know the most likely place to 
look for them, since they must have 
thought that no one had seen their 
getaway, and so no one would be fol- 
lowing them so soon. Likely they'll 
get imder a roof tonight, anyhow, 
and maybe poke on tomorrow 

As they rode. Cole Cody told Cal 
Ib detail Aunt Jenifer's information, 
her suspicions and surmises. 

Cal led the way, and the darkness 
Aid not matter to him; moreover, 
his horse soon discovered where be 
was going and thereafter needed no 
touch on the reins. They kept close 
to the creek for a mile, and though 
they rode swiftly they heard no 
sound of hoofbeats ahead. Then Cal 
■wung to the right where a small 
^ibutary brook came tumbling 
down, and presently they passed 
Into the mouth of a steep-walled 
ravine. It was about a half hour 
after entering the ravine that Cal 
Roundtree -called softly over his 

"We've run 'em down, pardner. 
Daere't a log cabin up there at the 
bead of the canyon where an old 
prospector used to hang out; no- 
body's been in it for three-four year, 
but there's a light there now." 

Tbey rode slowly, keeping their 
horses ia the deep grass at the sides 
of the trail so that all hoofbeats 
were muffled. Thus they drew with- 
in a hundred yards of the log eabln. 
There Cal Roundtree gave a signal 
to stop, and both dismoimted. They

A voice, not Ranee Waldron's, was 
■peaking, and it was rough and 
querulous and came near being 

". . . and so, there you let me 
rot all day, damn you. I might of

doctoring I'm getting. By God, 
Ranee, I've got a notion and a good 
noUon— " ! 

"You'd better keep your mouth 
shut, Tom, old man, before you talk 
yourself into more trouble than you 
can ever crawl out of." 

There spoke Ranee Waldron, and 
bis voice was arrogant, contemptu- 
oiu, revealing a man very sure of 

"Get it into your head, Rantie, 
that things have changed plenty! 
You had me down good and plenty, 
didn't you? You could have wag- 
gled, your finger and sent me to the 
pen, couldn't you?" He laughed 
chucklingly. "Not any more, kid! 
I've thought it over from all an- 
gles. Ranee. You won't do any 
squealing on me because at the end 
you've let your foot slip; you'd be 
squealing on yourself the same as 
on me. What I've did you paid me 
lor. The. other job, with me getting 
shot up, you and me did together. 
And I can prove it!" 

There was a breathless stillness 
there in the cabin. Then Ranee 
Waldron spoke again, and there was 
a marked change in his tone. All 
the challenge and threat, all the 
masterfulness and contempt had 
gone out of it. 

"You are right, Tom. We have 
gcme into this thing together and 
we had better see it through togeth- 

■e saw Ranee Waldroa clearly la 
the caadle Ught. 

er. And I'll even grant you that 
I no longer have any bold on you; 
if you are big enough fool for it, 
you can leave me flat and go your 
own way for the rest of your life 
knowing that you don't have to be 
afraid of me any longer, because 
as you say I am as deep ia this last 
affair as you are. It's your turn 
to speak up: Stick along with me 
and take orders from me and make 
yourself a big stake if I get away 
with this job, as I'm sure I wUl, with 
you or without you. Or tuck your 
tail between your legs and run out 
on me.". 

That sort of talk, straight from 
the shoulder, evidently threw Tom 
Gough off his balance. 

"I'm with you, Ranee," he said, 
and all the belligerent menace had 
melted out of his tone. "Now what?" 

"You hole up here for a few days 
and give that woimd a chance to

few things I'm not sure of yet; I'll 
drop in on you late tomorrow night." 

"That's fair enough." said Tom 

Cal Roundtree had shoved Cody 
out of his way and was peering in 
through the open slit between the 
two logs. He saw Ranee Waldron 
clearly in the candlelight, saw him 
go to the door and pass through and 
clo<e the door behnd him. And 
clearly he saw Tom Gough. a man 
of low, squat stature with a thick 
thatch of black hair and a week's 
black bristly growth of whiskers; 
with a brutish, flat face and a pair 
of brilliant, close-set black eyes. And

And at the ranch house, while Cal 
Roundtree and Cole Cody were giv- 
ing their attention to Waldron and 
Tom Gough, Aunt Jenifer was busy- 
ing herself in her'iwn fashion. She 
scurried post-haste to her own room, 
closed &e door and was going to 
lock it when she discovered there 
wad no key in the lock. She hurried 
to Ann's room adjoining. Tlie door 
was closed but tinlocked;. no key 
there either. 

But she thought, that Waldron 
man'9 door is, locked. He's got a 
key. There ought to be others some- 
where. So, carrytag her lamp, she 
went prowling through the house, 
key-himting. She looked at all locks 
en passant, she opened all drawers 
in tables and dressers, she ran her 
fingers along cupboard shelves. She 
came to a closed closet and opened it 
to peer inside, and, of all places, 
found a key in the lock within the 

She tried it ha her own lock; it 
fitted and she shot the bolt home. 
She locked herself in and went to 
Ann's door, the farther one opening 
npoB the corridor. It fitted there, 
too. Another hmf! It seemed as 
though all the locks in the house 
were the same. And right then the 
inspiration and the temptation 
assailed her to try her key on still 
another doer. It it worked on these 
locks, why not on Ranee Waldron'sf 

She scurried to that door through 
.jfhich Waldron had passed so many 
times, always locking it behind him. 

And the key fitted the lock, and 
the door opened! She was thrilled 
with a sense of adventure Cind was 
also just a mite frightened. 

She entered a bedroom that was 
in considerable disorder. She 
glanced at the bed itself with its 
covers dragging on the floor; then 
around the room until her eyes came 
to a full stop at a table on which 
there were some papers and a couple 
Of ilenclled account books. She 
flipped over pages: Cattle bought 
and sold; numbers in the various 
herds, bost and sales prices; that 
sort of thing for the most part 
Among the scattered papers was a 
new letter signed by Andy Jenkins. 
It said: 

"Deer Bill, I done my job all 
right, better than you speckalated 
what I mean is I got, the whole. ten 
thousand and am brlhgjng it with 
me only I am staying a day with 
my relations and will ketch ihe 
stage next day. 

Yours truly, 

Andy Jenkins." 

"So that's it" Aunt Jenifer mum- 
bled to herself. "That Waldron dev- 
il found this letter and got busy, him 
and the man he's been hiding in 
here all day. No .wonder be wanted 
to get rid of us." " 

She crumpled the tell-tale letter 
In her hand and hurried into the 
other room and tried the door lead- 
ing to the outside; again the key 
fitted. She closed the door again 
and began taking stock of this sec- 
ond room's contents. There was a 
Splotch on the floor; a rug had evi- 
dently been drawn to cover it, then 
its edge turned over by a careless 
foot as the two men departed. And 
that spot looked to Aunt. Jenifer like 
a blood smear. So she leaped to 
the same conclusion that had of- 
fered itself to Cody and Roundtree. 

On the next step she was already 
decided. She would unlock the out- 
side door again, leave it unlocked, 
but closed, make her retreat through 
Waldron's room, slip out of his door 
that led into the corridor, lock that 
door and carry her key off with 
her. Then when he came home and 
found his outer door unlocked he 
would have something to think 
about; when he missed the Jenkins 
letter which he |iad been top great a 
fool to destroy or hide, he'd have 
still more matter for thought 

But there wouldn' the vaguest 
hint to make him think that this had 
been an inside job. And even though 
for one reason or ' another he did 
get the idea that Aunt Jenifer had 
had something to do with it; he 
couldn't really be convinced— and 
he'd be mighty careful about speak- 
ing of it to her. for fear of tipping 
his hand. And watch her play inno- 
cent tomorrow I 

Now she wanted to hurry faster 
than ever, for she kept telling her- 
self that she was in a den of mur- 
derers. Yet she kept telling her- 
self also that now was her one and 
only chance to make a thorough 
search in these two rooms. 

Well, she had done all she could 
now. and bad better scamper for 
ber own quarters. - 

So she did as she had planned, 
imlocked the outer door, removed 
the key and turned to retrace her 
■tep|throi)gh Ranee Waldron's door. 

And then'sherstifitenad and almost 
dropped her lamp. Distinctly sho 
beard rapidly oncoming footsteps

LESSON TEXT— John 10:1-18, J7-38. 

GOLDEN TEXT— "I am the good shep- 
herd; the good shepherd glveth his life 
for the sheep." — John 10:^1. 

Beautiful and meaningful as .they 
are, none of the other figures or 
types of our Lord's r^deinptive work 
..^ave a stronger appeal than that of 
the good shepherd. Even those who 
have never tended sheep nor yet 
seen them under the shepherd's care 
sense the telling aptness of the alle- 
gory of the Good Shepherd We 
know how much we are like sheep 
needing the tender shepherd's care, 
and we soon -learn to know and to 
trust Christ as the True Shepherd 
of the flock. 

The center "of the picture is toe 
Good Shepherd, and it is aroiuid 
Him that we group our thoughts. 

I. He Knows His Sheep (vv. l-S).- 
At night, whenever possible, the 

sheep were brought into a fold, a 
walled-in enclosure with shelters and 
with a single gate. Many different 
flocks were kept together under the 
care of an undershepherd. In the 
morning the shepherds came to lead 
forth the flock. They came by the 
door, not as the thieves of the night, 
who sought to come in by stealth 
over the wall. 

When the shepherd called, his own 
sheep responded. We are told that 
they would not come at the call of a 
stranger— not being ready to trust 

The application is obvious, and 
yet a word is in order. We ought 
to e^camine ourselves and see wheth- 
er we do indeed know our Lord's, 
voice. Do we respond when He 
calls us? Then, too, let us be on the 
lookout against those who profess 
to be shepherds, who call them- 
selves "pastor" or "reverend," and 
have only one purpose — to despoil 
the sheep. They are "thieves and 
robbers"- Jesus said so. They are 
only interested as long as it pays. 
The true shepherd cares for his 

II. He Protects His Sheep (vv. 

Not only thieves, but wild animals 
woiild attack sheep, and it is said 
that often the shepherd died to pro- 
tect them from harm. But the hire- 
ling, serving for what he can get out 
of it, is not interested any longer. 
When danger appears, he flees. He 
has not the real shepherd heart and 
cares not if the sheep he destroyed. 
Having stolen them to enrich him- 
self," he will not defend them at the 
cost of his own life. 

Note the sharp contract of "I am 
the good shepherd" with the dark 
picture of the faithless hirelings. Not 
only does it magnify His goodness; 
but it deepens the blackness of their 

We should recall that the Good 
Shepherd is able to protect His 
sheep; for while He lays down His 
life for them. He takes it again in 
victory over sin and death (see vv. 
17, 18). The Saviour seemed to have 
been defeated at Calvary, but He 
arose ^gain, and ever liveth to make 
intercession on our behalf (Heb. 
.in. He Seeks Other Sheep (v. 16). 

The other sheep Jesus had ia mind 
were probably the Gentiles. The 
believers He then bad were Jews, 
but the day was to come when the 
Gentiles were to hear and believe. 
His desire for them may well stir in 
our hearts an eagerness to go out 
and bring in all— both Jew and Gen- 
tile—who will, by believing in Christ, 
become members of His one fold. 

Note the word "must" in verse 16. 
It does not say "it convenient," nor 
"when we can raise enough money," 
nor "after our local debts are paid" 
we will go out and seek others. 
There is a divine imperative here — 
it "must" be done. 

Let us not fail to gather the full 
significance of the . expression "one 
flock, one shepherd." We are not in- 
terested in any manufactured>.,unity 
of man-made organizations. Certain- 
ly we will not accept union Which 
means compromise of essential 
truth. But unity under (Hirlst, the 
one great Shepherd, that we want — 
yes and will have. He makes that 
certain— "they shall be one flock." 

Let us not put hindrances in the 
way of that kind of unity, and let 
us not be delinquent about seeking 
the "other sheep." Now a final word. 

TV. He Keeps All His Sheep (w. 


These words (said after a period 
of weeks had elapsed) stress the 
blessed assurance which comes to 
those who follow Christ Jesus re- 
buked the Jews for their unbelief, 
telling them that they were not His 

Those who are His have been giv- 
en to Him by the Father— an eternal 
gift to Him— and He gives to them 
eternal life. 

Tbe power back of this whole mat< 
ter is evident in verse 30. Christ 
is God. He who is in Christ's hand 
is also ia the Fatb^'s hand, "and 
not man is able to pluck them out 
of the .Father's hand." Instead of

it to his beloved, says Collier's. In 
appreciation, she would wear it 
next to her heart — as a stay in
